Having Trouble Finding That Right Fit in Your Clothes?

Getting the right bustline fit is eaiser than you think.


 Take a Fit Class and see for yourself! 

It's Like Magic!



Do you love sitting down at the big pattern table at your favorite fabric store? Looking at all the latest styles out for the year, you picture yourself in that radiant dress or tailored suit. Then reality sets in, even the watercolor painted models are about a size 2 and therefore that flowing bottom of the dress will look like a tent on you. So you close the book and move on.


I've been there too. Then I took a class that would change all of that thinking.  
If this has been you, or you are tired of trying on the generic sized clothes from department stores, then you should check out my latest sewing class, Fit for Real People.

Rosanna Benbow,

Palmer/Pletsch Certified Sewing Instructor



Rosanna Benbow, CSI, ASC School of Sewing

Trained by Pati Palmer and Marta Alto, who have fitted thousands of body types in the past 20 years, I teach the Palmer/Pletsch Fit for Real People Workshop. Pati learned that measuring wasn't enough, so she developed the "try-on" method. They have examined and used many approaches to fitting over the years. Today they teach what works the best and easiest for YOU! Doing very little measuring because measuring does not tell you all you need to know about the body you are fitting. Learning to fit yourself and others is a process. It is a constant challenge because, as fashion changes, you need to decide the best approach for altering each new design. You will gain the same information she shared with me that will assist you in fitting your personal patterns. 

I teach the Palmer/Pletsch Pattern Fitting System, let me help you to find your perfect fit!

Pant Pattern Fitting Class

Pant fit

  • Analysis of your body shape to determine your perfect size
  • Creation of a tissue pattern to match your size and shape
  • Final pattern fit and instruction on how to complete the process for future fittings
  • Cut and pin your custom pants on a fabric of choice
  • Sew to make your perfect fitting pants
  •  2 pair of pant patterns altered and 1 cut out in fabric to do a draping fit. 

Beginning Pant Fitting and Sewing  2 day class.  Using the Palmer/Pletsch pattern fitting method, you will be tissue fitted in a simple pant to find your variations from a pattern. Then you will cut it out, pin fit it in fabric and complete the pant with elastic waist or zipper and waistband. Using current McCall's patterns by Palmer/Pletsch #s based on your fullest hip measurement or as close to that measurement that you can get. 


I will analyze your body and determine your size, you will cut your simple pant pattern tissue out and ready it for fitting.


I will fit you in tissue in a pant and then show you how to alter it for your figure. You will do the alterations to the pattern. Then I will do the final fit review teaching you how to complete this process on your own for future pattern fitting. My preference is that you will then cut it out in sloper fabric to get the best fit.  If you do not want to do a sloper pattern then you can use pant fabric and pin the pants together for the fabric fitting. Then, we will fine tune the fit in fabric. If time allows you can sew them up or you will take your fit pant fabric home and sew it together.


You will then learn to fit a trouser and pull-on pants pattern if you would like.
