Pamela's Patterns

The Perfect T-Shirt

CLASS TYPE: Hands-on

LENGTH: All day

A T-Shirt can be more than a comfy top you throw on to do housework. A nice-fitting T-shirt can be the most versatile top in your wardrobe. This selection from Pamela's Patterns addresses all the fitting issues women face (rounded shoulders and back, full bust, hip room, etc.), and gives you a T-shirt you'll be proud to wear anywhere! Make it casual, dressy, or anything in-between.




The Perfect Tank Top

CLASS TYPE: Hands-on

LENGTH: All day

If you feel that tank tops are too revealing for your figure, The Perfect Tank Top pattern will change your mind! This pattern is designed to help hide your problem areas--upper chest and bra straps--and accentuate the positive. A flattering V-neckline, optional full bust front, fuller hip area, and "essence of waist" make this tank top a pleasure to wear alone or under sweaters and jackets.




The T-Shirt Makeover


CLASS TYPE: Hands-on

LENGTH: Half day

Do you have collections of those oversized T-shirts from vacations, school activities, concerts, etc? Thanks to Pamela's Patterns, you can take those big T-shirts and turn them into fitted and stylish tops you'll be proud to wear anywhere! The technique is simple and fast. In no time you could have a whole new wardrobe of cute tops.




The Versatile Twin Set

CLASS TYPE: Hands-On

LENGTH: All day

A nice twin set combo can be the most versatile piece in your wardrobe, and this one really delivers! Both the sleeveless top and cardigan or bolero style jacket are designed to flatter a woman with real curves. This pattern has been designed with the most common fit alterations built right in - high roundback, forward shoulder, full bust and hip/tummy, and a great fit in the neck and shoulder. The sleeveless top covers that extra skin in the armhole area, and both pieces feature an "essence of waist". Choose the classic cardigan length jacket, or show some style with the modestly designed bolero.




Pamela's Favorite Bias Skirt or Magic Pencil Skirt


CLASS TYPE: Hands On

LENGTH: All Day

A bias skirt is a flattering style for almost all figures and is guaranteed to make you look and feel thinner! It features two lengths – above the ankle for an elegant look or just above the knee for something more casual. Choose between the full or slim silhouette, and add a smooth sew-in elastic technique with Pamela’s Fantastic Elastic!

The pencil skirt silhouette is an improvement over the traditional straight skirt. It tapers in from hip to hem giving a more slimming appearance no matter what your body type! The secret is in the fitting process and Pamela will teach you how to get the best fit ever with her proven dart and side seam placement methods. You will achieve a smooth look that is traditionally found in skirts with a waistband and zipper, but the “magic” is done with comfortable Fantastic Elastic!




Cool Cardigans - Draped or Banded Front

CLASS TYPE: Hands-on

LENGTH: All day

Cardigans are a popular fashion accessory, and these two fashion-forward styles are perfect! Choose between the stylish "draped front" or the more tailored "banded front" but get instructions for both- all in one class! As always, Pamela's Patterns give you a great fit, concentrating on women with real curves and fitting issues.
