A four week workshop led by Janet Major to help us make garments that fit and that we really like.
However, she described it as a tall order as each of us is individual!
Janet learned to knit and sew before she went to school and has made her own clothes for most of her life. Later she sought out industry experts and undertook extensive colour and style training to reach 'Masters' level and has a wealth of experience and qualifications.
Abundant tips and techniques were shared. Woven garments focussed on skirts with some reference to jackets and knitted garments concentrated on tops, cardigans and jumpers.
Right: Janet's fitted skirt made from fabric that she wove from Shetland wool
This helped us to evaluate good fit, scale, proportion, body line and colour
Perhaps even creating our own personal body form.
Such a comprehensive course over four weeks. The topic raised queries and it will take time to give it the attention it deserves as we mull over the content of the course each in our own way, but if we just think more about planning it will have been a very worthwhile workshop. Thank you Janet.
