Frequently Asked Questions What measurements fit this pattern? This pattern is graded for bust measurements 32" - 56". What if my bust is smaller than 32" or larger than 56"? Contact us before registering. We may be able to alter the pattern to fit your size. What if I don't finish? Everyone should be able to finish in 4 weeks, however if you don't-- and everyone sews at different speeds so it's possible!-- you are welcome to attend an Open Workshop to finish up. Will we cover tailoring so this garment fits perfectly? No, we won't. This class is focused on learning how to read a pattern and construction. Fitting a garment requires you to make several versions of a garment and we don't have time for that in this class. At the end of class we can make suggestions to pattern alterations that will help make the fit better for the next time!
