What is a fit session?
Fit sessions are like a 1-on-1 tutoring session with your favorite bra fitting expert. Whether you’re struggling to choose a pattern, wondering how to adjust your muslin, or just need someone to help you figure out how to keep your straps from falling down, you need a personalized fit session! Come prepared with questions and let your instructor bring their years of experience to all your unique fitting challenges.
These fit sessions are available for purchase exclusively at the Great Bra Sewing Bee. They take place over a video conferencing software of the instructor’s choice. The individual instructors determine the exact details like the length of the session.
