In Fitting Fashion

  • New Live Event: The Fitting Fun Workshop

    Fitting is a challenge and even more so when you are fitting yourself. I think I've heard the phrase "I don't have a fitting buddy" more often than I can count. Believe me, I understand. Fitting yourself often means you need to be as flexible as a gymnast and have eyes on the back of your head. Sometimes mirrors and cameras and the help of your husband or partner just won't cut it so I created a new workshop that I think will help you out immensely.

    It's The Fitting Fun Workshop on November 17, 18, and 19, 2017.
