Thank you for visiting us today.
This is the review of the Craftsy Class: Easy Fitting, the Palmer / Pletsch way: Pants.
I wanted to review this class for you, because I became a fan of the Palmer / Pletsch way to fit pants since I bought their famous book.
I was happy to find this book on a thrift store some years ago. The book is very useful and practical, showing great examples of pant fitting.
I was able to find exactly the solution to the issues I had with my pants.
Knowing that Palmer / Pletsch method was easy to follow and very convenient (there is no muslin fitting) I wanted to watch the Craftsy Class and learn a bit more about it.
The class is instructed by Melissa Watson, Pati Palmer’s daughter. She has a very interesting background in fashion and has created patterns for ______________
Craftsy’s Description of the class is the following:
” Discover techniques for creating perfect-fitting pants quickly, easily and consistently. No muslins or trial-and-error necessary! Join sewing experts Pati Palmer and Melissa Watson as they teach you to use tissue-fitting techniques for different body types and a variety of figure variations. Start with how to choose the correct pattern size for your body and even how to fit yourself without a partner. Build the skills to recognize when pattern areas such as the thighs, tummy, backside, crotch length and more need adjustment. Then, learn to make all the necessary alterations right on the tissue pattern! The results are pants with a flattering fit, every time from front to back and top to bottom.”
WHAT I LOVED ABOUT THE CLASS:
Fitting yourself: Probably 99% of the time, the fitting process is made by myself, alone at home. I do not have a sewing buddy to help me to check the fitting of the pattern. During the class, Melissa teaches how to fit the pattern yourself.
I thought that it was great.
It was an easy class to follow: The examples were great to understand different fitting issues and how the Palmer / Pletsch way can be easily adapted to any pants.
Free Pattern: The class comes with the pattern used on the examples. Great way to start! So, you can follow it at home and do the changes you will need.
The waistband method: In lesson 7, there is a waistband method that you won’t want to miss, trust me. I will be making my next pair of pants with it.
