correct body balance, armhole formulas, sleeve adjustments, various types of darts, and cup sizes.
Special design features will be covered, including princess seams, yokes, neckline shapes, lapels, and
collars. Whether you are a size 2 or 52, join Connie for this workshop and discover the most important
concepts for proper couture fit and patternmaking! This program gives you a learning experience that
you will use over and over again.
