How often have you worked some fancy stitch pattern but been stumped when it came time to shape the neckline? What do you do if you want a classic set-in sleeve instead of the dreaded drop shoulder? How can you create a refined fit and nip-in for the waist or fullness for the bust? This class will clue you in on how to work within the stitch structure of a fancy pattern and still add the necessary garment shaping. Find out trade secrets from Lily’s ready-to-wear experience.
