Sewing Pattern Classes in NZ

Fit and adjust commercial sewing patterns before you sew, using a tried and true process that will help you overcome your unique fit challenges.

Take an in-depth class with a trained and experienced Palmer Pletsch tutor to help you identify the  alterations you require. Work through the tissue fitting process on numerous commercial patterns of your choice and develop your knowledge and skills. There is much to be gained from watching the other real women in the class  being fitted too. 

Adjust your patterns before you sew to ensure the final garment fits and flatters your figure. If you love to sew but find that you’re frequently disappointed with the fit of your finished garment, this technique provides the solution for you. Our sewing pattern classes in NZ will show you how to tackle fit problems before cutting into your fabric.

Pattern  fitting classes are suitable for all figure types, from pre-teen to mature.

Do you want to create unique designer garments that fit and flatter your body?

We can teach you a practical process to achieve this using any commercial paper pattern.

The Palmer Pletsch method of fitting patterns has been used successfully for over thirty years in the USA, Canada and Australia and now we are excited to be able to offer classes in your region.

You will be rewarded for the time spent fitting the pattern as expensive fabric and skilled workmanship do not compensate for poor fit.
