Did you attend our first live webinar: before you make the first cut? Well now we have a new live webinar where BurdaStyle online editor Meg Healy will show you the ropes of pattern grading, and how to make alterations to your sewing pattern so they fit you perfectly! Register Now to learn some great pattern making fit alterations. Can’t attend? Not to worry, all registrants will receive an email with a copy of the event!

Do you love to sew? How about wearing a piece that fits YOU perfectly? The key to a perfectly fitting garment is to make alterations to the pattern before you sew, instead of having the terror of a million alterations after you have completed the piece. If you fall in-between pattern sizes and are unsure which one to alter, this webinar is for you! Learn how to compare measurements on your body with those of the pattern and make the necessary alterations. See how to easily add or remove length and width without compromising the pattern style. This webinar is for the more advanced sewer who is comfortable using drafting tools and is used to working with sewing patterns.

REGISTER NOW for this live event Thursday June 06, 11:00 a.m. EST (3:00pm GMT).

ALL registrants will receive a recording of the live event, even if you don’t watch it live

Hope to see you all there!

    I still haven’t received my recording for this course. I subscribed the first time just because there were the option to watch it later, I couldn’t followed all the live lesson because I have a little child that bring constantly my attention. Is there a certain date when will we receive it? I registered with the email giodibi at gmail dot com, please, could you verify why so many people hasn’t had the file yet?

    I am looking forward to seeing this, I have another event to attend so will have to settle for the recording you send :(. Anyway, I’ve got several patterns that I need to either grade up or down so this ought to be interesting.

    Guys, what Burda means is that if you already have an account you need to make a New one(yes that right another one) to register for this. I’m sorry Burda but that’s unacceptable. You have to create a “new account” to register for the webinar? That’s very bad customer service and most of us here don’t have the time to stuff around creating new accounts and fiddling around. I am not impressed at all. I wanted to do this also just like the others who posted here and are confused and not that computer talk savvy. I am but others here aren’t.

    Too bad the webinar will run at 7am here on the West coast. If I didn’t have to get the kids to school at that time, I would be already registered ;-(.

    Dear BurdaStyle.com Members: I apologize for not making this more clear in the communications regarding our webinar. At the moment our event are being sold on a separate shopping cart than BurdaStyle.com. We are working very hard to launch the functionality to sell them here, but for the time being you will need to create a new account (can be the same information you use on this site) before you can purchase the webinar.

    If you have any additional questions please feel free to email us at answers@burdastyle.com
