sewing for real-world curves.


Don’t settle for clothes that don’t fit! Learn how to customize patterns so they are perfectly suited to your body type in Tailored to Fit: The Palmer/Pletsch Tissue-Fitting Method with Pati Palmer and Marta Alto

Pati and Marta have spent over 30 years developing the Palmer/Pletsch Tissue-Fitting Method and in this class they will show you how it works. 

You’ll learn: 
  • A better way to fit yourself, eliminating the need to take so many body measurements  
  • Identify the areas of your pattern that need adjustment 
  • Tips for fitting a sheath dress (both bodice and skirt) to your body type 
Pati and Marta will help you sew for your real-world curves. You’ll learn how to adjust a pattern to fit a large bust, a sway back, rounded shoulders, a broad back, and many other common features. They will share techniques developed over three decades of sewing that are guaranteed to lend a tailored look. 

Learn how you vary from a standardized pattern and alter the tissue to fit you using the Palmer/Pletsch Tissue Fitting Method. After watching Pati and Marta at work, you'll be able to customize patterns so your handmade garments look and feel awesome.
