A new Pattern Making Neighborhood Group -the Designing Divas- will start in April. The group will meet on the fourth Tuesday of the month, 10 a.m. to noon, at the home of Mary Jo Forbes. The first meeting will be April 23rd.
We will start by fitting slopers, then learning how to make changes to the basic sloper – moving darts, adding collars, changing sleeves, etc. All depending on what the members want. Maybe a few mall field trips in the future to assess styles and pattern changes, as well. Show and tell will be members bringing in their muslins for fit analysis.
Our first couple of meetings will be getting that perfect sloper. We’ll be using fitting shell pattern McCalls 2718 or Vogue 1004. When on sale these patterns cost between $1.88 and $3.99. Please let us know if you cannot find your pattern size.
Looking forward to seeing you at Pattern Making NG,
Debby & Mary Jo
