In the first course of the Fair Fit Method, you will learn the foundational skills used to make all Fair Fit garments. In Learn and Make the Fair Fit Skirt, you will learn beginner draping skills and how to analyze your body shape, size, and proportion to pad out your dress form to create an accurate fit. This aspect of the course will help you learn how to utilize a form better, and benefit your sewing practice and how you make to all garments moving forward.
We will also dig deep into skirt fit and the most common fit issues. In our first project, you will learn how to determine your own unique body length, circumference, and foundational principles of proportion that will help you create a flattering custom skirt.
All of your Fair Fit garments will be draped, and you will also learn pattern alterations to further customize the fit. After the pattern is finalized, you will move onto your second skirt, choosing either another pattern variation or implementing the sewing methods taught in the course.
In this course, you will learn the the two fundamental sewing methods used in Fair Fit garments, raw finish and clean finish. For our first garments, you will learn the raw finish method, as it allows you to customize the draping and the pattern without sacrificing the first garment. For your second skirt, you can use the Fair Fit clean finish method after you finalize the fit of your skirt.
This course will give you a foundation in draping, pattern fit, body proportion for your lower half, as well as the core principles as to how Fair Fit garments are made. It is the prerequisite to Learn and Make the Fair Fit Dress, and sets up your skills for all upcoming Fair Fit Method courses in 2018.
