Fit Doctor: Fit, Fashion, & Fun

Garment sewing is the easy part, but it's fitting that makes garments come alive and compliment the body instead of just covering it. This is where the fit doctor, Judy Kessinger, comes in. This is NOT couture sewing or making a sloper—this is how to “fit” the easy way to create and design the clothes we all wear every day!

Here's the schedule for the day:

10 am – 11 am:
Lecture - Fitting Issues and How to Solve Them

Judy will present a power point on issues that most ladies have when fitting tops and pants and how to solve those issues.

11 am - 11:30 am: Short Break

11:30 am – 1 pm:
The Art of Fashion Camouflage

"The Art of Fashion Camouflage" is a trunk show that covers various tricks on style, solves fitting issues, and demonstrates stress free sewing. Judy will be bringing the garments that go along with these looks and shows you how to make fit and fashion FUN again.

1pm – 2pm:
Break for Lunch provided by Rae-Bon Sew & Quilt Shop

2:00pm – 3:00pm:

This is the time to ask the questions from the presentations.

3:00pm – 6:00pm:
Personal Fittings

The most important part of the day! Judy will personally measure each attendee and draw on a miniature pattern to take home. We go over their fitting issues and solve them then and there.

Instructor: Judy Kessinger
Instructor Bio: Judy Kessinger started her career owning and operating a small retail fabric store in Louisville, Kentucky. She traveled nationwide holding seminars for Hancock Fabrics for over 25 years, designed costumes for national and international figure skaters and created a fast and easy way to conquer fitting problems for that field. Judy?s next goal was to make stress-free sewing with simple solutions for fitting. Her personal style included many relaxed, comfortable but well fitted outfits. In her search for the "perfect" pattern she decided to use her experience and create the system herself. The Master Tops and Master Pants patterns were born! Once you FIT the basic pattern, you can build and create an entire wardrobe on those two patterns. She is known by many as the Fit Doctor, curing the ills of the sewing "blues". Sewing is the easy part but it's the FITTING that makes garments come alive and compliment the body instead of just covering it!
