learn to use a pattern!

January 18, 2010

In the first installment of this class, we will be making Amy Butler’s “the Liverpool” shirt/tunic/dress.

You will learn to read and understand a garment pattern and come out of the class with a beautiful garment- of your choice- made to fit you or a loved one!

We will spend the first hour of the first session doing a review on the machine.  From there, we will begin looking at the pattern instructions and discussing some of the terminology.  Once everyone has selected the cut and size of the garment, we’ll begin cutting out the fabric (which will be purchased here at the start of class).  Now we will begin following the pattern step by step to execute a professionally made top.

After completion of the garment, we will do a basic fitting and make alterations as needed (time permitting).

2- 3.5 hour sessions.
$180/person—minimum of 2 people per class, maximum of 4 people.

Materials are not included.  You will be able to select from our fabrics at a 10% discount.  The amount of fabric will depend on the size and style of the garment you choose to make.  You will also be required to purchase the pattern for the class, as each person will be cutting a different size/style.  You can keep this pattern and alter it in the future to make a new and exciting look!

Some sewing experience required.

First class dates: Mon, Feb 8 & Tues, Feb 9 from 5:30-9pm.
