Have you ever found yourself working on the fit of a garment and not knowing when to stop? Or felt confused about what actually constitutes a fitting issue? Or maybe even found yourself obsessing over how something your making fits?
It may be that your expectations around fit are a bit skewed. We’ve all developed certain perspectives on fit, many of them informed by ready-to-wear and the prevalence of stretch fabrics on the market today.
When you layer those expectations with your own views and judgments about your body, it can be a recipe for perfectionism. In this week’s episode of the podcast, we talk about developing a healthier mindset around fitting while still working to develop the skills and outcomes you’re looking for when you sew.
We also talk about our brand new fitting class, How to Fit with Confidence! In this class, Haley will walk you through a framework for fitting that goes beyond individual alterations.
Listen to the full episode to hear:
- Why some of us might have unrealistic expectations about a "perfect" fit.
- How our views on our body get tangled up with our views on fit.
- How to approach fitting from the perspective that feels right for you.
