Palmer Pletsch Pants Workshop

Last month I accomplished a dream that I've had for many years.  I went to a fitting workshop.  After years of looking at different workshops I decided on the Palmer Pletsch pants fit workshop.  I like the idea of using a printed pattern and draping it.  I've drafted my own patterns using Connie Crawfords' book and the Sure Fit Design kits.  These are both awesome ways to draft a pattern.  It is close, but still needs some work. I thought by learning how to fit using a tissue that I could use pre-printed patterns or ones that I had drafted using other techniques.  Plus the class was held in Portland, not to far from Seattle.

Patti Palmer was amazing!! I learned more that I could imagine.  Patti and her assistant Helen were the nicest folks.  So keep looking back for some really great fitting pants pictures.
