Kim McBrien Evans is bringing her incredibly popular classes on sweater fit and adjustments Seattle Yarn us as an amazing weekend series!
The Sweater Sessions is a workshop series that takes a comprehensive look at how sweaters are constructed, and how to better shape them to YOUR body. Each class is a focused look at one of the important aspects of making the sweaters we want and will wear forever. Want to block out the time and give yourself a whole personal seminar/retreat's worth of classes? You can sign up for the entire series at a discount!
Apocalyptic Making Skills; Solo Measurements: We are usually told not to measure ourselves - but what do we do when social distancing or isolation make that the only option? This class will teach you how to put together a “solo measuring” toolkit, how to take your own body measurements, and to understand which measurements are key to great garment fit. March 19th 5pm-7pm Pacific/8pm-10pm Eastern
Bums and Bellies: Sweater Shaping for Your Body: Using your measurements, this class will look at how to master the fit of sweater patterns to YOUR body, and what those modifications look like in a simplified form. March 20th 10am-12pm Pacific/1pm-3pm Eastern
Boob Camp: Bust Darts for Every Body: Just what it sounds like! Learn life changing techniques for those of us with larger chests. Learn how to choose a size and to construct 2 types of bust darts for your chest, giving you endless
choice for modifying any sweater pattern. March 20th 1pm-3pm Pacific/4pm-6pm Eastern
Out on a Limb: Modifying Set-in Sleeves and Armholes: If the shoulders fit, the sleeves don’t. If the sleeves fit, the bust doesn’t. These are common fit issues in our sweaters. Let’s fix them! March 21st 10am-12pm Pacific/1pm-3pm Eastern
Boob Camp 2: Necklines for Every Body: Come back to Boob Camp, and learn how to adjust any neckline to your favorite shape, and how to adjust neckline width and depth for comfort and style. You'll also learn why different necklines work for different people, and how color can come into play. March 21st 1pm-3pm Pacific/4pm-6pm Eastern
