“Seams Like A Natural Fit”

An amazing mentor and friend, Lorraine Torrence (the original founder of Sewn Square One) recently started a new company, “Seams Like A Natural Fit” offering creative clothing and fitting seminars around the United States. I had the chance to sit in on one of her creative clothing classes on a smaller scale a few years ago. The amount of inspiration, talent, and feedback given during the class by Lorraine and by her students made for a great experience. Additionally, she is partnering with Emily Robertson Hood, who has years of experience in fitting, having previously worked for top apparel companies and the renowned fit company, Alvanon.

If you are looking for guidance regarding fitting and making your own pieces of art as clothing–I highly recommend Lorraine and Emily as teachers.

Below are the patterns being used for the “Seams Like a Natural Fit” Japanese Fabric Workshop in La Conner, WA in late March.

PS During an internship I was able to sit in on a 2-day seminar given by representatives from Alvanon and they are definitely a company to watch if you are interested in fit on the retail and consumer level.
