“TO CUT THE PERFECT SHAPE: The fundamentals of cutting and fitting to the figure"

Registration opens Wednesday, March 30th at 12:30 PM EDT
Workshop starts Wednesday, May 4th
with Brooke Welborn & Christina Johnson

Eighteenth century mantua-maker’s produced most women's fitted gowns and jackets by cutting and fitting to the body. One method used in the period was to cut a lining to the figure which could then be used to inform the shape of the desired gown. In this online workshop participants will learn to think like a mantua-maker as they practice the process of cutting and fitting shapes on their half sized mannequin (in stays) to gain a foundational understanding of the many variables that must be considered in order to cut the perfect shape.

Participants need to have a finished Official B&T Mini-Mannequin and at least one completed set of stays from the previous stay workshop.

Workshop Cost: $95 includes nine weeks of supported instruction with three one hour live Q&A sessions and an *additional* four weeks of access to course materials after the Final Q&A.
