In order to improve the fit in the upper end of our size range (sizes G-J), Blueprints is looking for a fit model in the Boston, MA or Providence, RI area.
What is a fit model?
A fit model is used by clothing designers to check the fit of patterns created on computers and/or dress forms. Not only can a fit model help fine tune the fit of clothing, but unlike a dress form, they can report on a design's comfort, style, and more. Since patterns can only be created in a certain number of sizes, a fit model has to have measurements that are in line with a specific size in the range. I wish I could make a pattern perfectly fit to every person I encounter, but there aren't enough hours in the day (and it would be impossible to fit that much paper in a cute envelope!)
No modeling experience is required to be a fit model for Blueprints. You just have to be a real person who doesn't mind - or better yet, enjoys - being measured and pinned. I am currently looking for a fit model for sizes G-J, so please only apply if your full bust measurement is between 40-46".
If you're interested in being a part of the pattern making process, apply below! Please provide measurements within .25 (1/4) inches.
