Module #9 is all about tailoring. Each participant makes a shirt to fit his or her own body. They take their own measurements and help do the same for other participants. New skills come into play: measuring, fitting, altering the garment, as well as understanding more complex patterns and constructions such as collars, facings, and button holes that require concentration and care to complete. Tailoring is taught in high school.
