Course emphasis is on fit above the waist, and on how to adapt a sizing system to individual fit using industrial grading techniques.
Please note: This is a graduate-level course. Most students also need to take their the sequel, Grading, and Sewing a Blouse, to fully understand the work in this course.
The two courses share a sample book. Most students will need to complete the work in Grading to Fit during the first several weeks of Grading and Sewing a Blouse. Grading to Fit’s sequel, Grading & Sewing a Blouse presents how to test the grading coordinates developed in Grading to Fit, by showing how to grade a blouse pattern to fit, then how to produce an exquisitely beautiful blouse using high-end industrial design room sewing.
