Craftsy Classes

Craftsy

 


The Palmer/Pletsch Tissue-Fitting method is now available as three online Craftsy classes!

In the Shirts & Tops class Pati Palmer and her daughter, Melissa Watson, work through fitting a blouse pattern using a variety of real-world examples of different fit issues.  The pattern is from the Palmer/Pletsch for McCall’s range and is included in the cost of the class.  Click on the link below to be taken to the Craftsy website:

 


Easy Fitting the Palmer/Pletsch Way: Pants

The newest class is about working with knit fabrics. Covering basic T-shirt type tops, wrap tops and easy-wear trousers, the course teaches how to get a perfect fit in a variety of stretch fabrics. Click on the link below to be taken to the Craftsy website:
