Video: One-on-one with Sarah Veblen, Part 1

Evamarie Gomez; Shot by Gary Junken and Mather Dolph

Fitting expert Sarah Veblen visited the Threads video studio to record her upcoming video workshop series, Master Pattern and Design Elements (Create a Master Skirt Pattern is available now!). While on set, Threads Associate Editor Carol Fresia sat down with Sarah for a one-on-one chat that goes beyond sewing and gives you an Insider look at how Sarah began her patternmaking and fitting career.

In this four-part video series, Sarah discusses fitting and touches on her methodology, offers tips for working for tricky fabrics, and even explains why she uses half-scale dress forms in most of her patternwork.

    Part one is excellent. Sarah Veblen has a charming demeanor and successfully invites us to learn more about fitting. I can hardly wait for parts 2, 3, and 4.

    28/01/2015 at 8:15pm from Downunder Australia: I am trying desperately to watch Lesson 1 by Sarah Veblen without any luck. Have been an 'Insider' since 5/11/2012, any clues from Threads Knowledge Base? No new system so can't blame that! Joan McKenzie, Melbourne.

    I have taken every class Sarah Veblen has taught online. What a wonderful opportunity to watch and learn, and go back and watch again. She has a very systematic way of teaching that is easy to understand. I'm looking forward to the remaining interviews.
