Figuring out our Fit (also knows as "FooFing")­

  • January 20, 2013 · 2:00 PM
  • King County Library - Foster Branch

Start the new year off with objectively learning about your very own figure - not what you think it is, not what you wish it were - and what kinds of styles flatter your figure.  All you need to bring is a thin piece of elastic to go around your waist and one yardstick.  Also wear pants that are fairly close-fitting and a close-fitting top.  We'll be pairing up to do this exercise.

Some other things to bring are patterns or clothing that you love, or wish you did, but that just don't look right on you and we'll know why at the end of the session.  That way you can trade patterns or know how to alter the clothing or make a decision to "release it to the universe" (also known as Goodwill) so that someone else can benefit from it.

Also bring any project you want to work on, because this exercise will take only about an hour altogether...probably.

I hope to see you there!

    Hi Kris,
    I sent you this cool, articulate answer...and the meetup group sent it back without it getting to you. So, let's see if I can remember...

    This is a fitting method that has to do with looking at our proportions and figuring out what looks good on our bodies, without worrying about how large or small or tall or short they might be. It's not really a fitting method as such. It's more of a reality check and a handy guide to knowing what will look good on your body type without necessarily having to try anything/everything on. Very good for knowing when confronted by large quantities of cool but expensive patterns, or catalogues, or...

    In other words - no need to read up ahead of time. It's very hands-on.

    Hello, I'd be interested in attending. Is there a fitting method that you plan to show us? If so, what is it so I could read up... Thanks!

    Anne, no, the Jan 19th meetup is scheduled as well. We are trying to cover both the north and south ends of Seattle to give all members a chance to attend meetups. In order to book the north end library and get the larger meeting room, I had to book it three months in advance. :)

    Does this mean the meetup on Jan 19th in Shoreline is cancelled? ( I can't attend both.) Thanks.
