Intro to Sewing Garments-May

Take that next step and learn to make clothes!

About this experience

Tuesdays, May 10, 17, 24 5:30-7:30pm


If you've gotten a bit of sewing under your belt and you are ready for the next step, join Nicole as she guides you through the process of making simple garments!


We will work with you before the class to individually choose an appropriate pattern that will allow you to finish your whole project in the weekend (no guarantees of course, but we try our best)! Please come in with enough time to wash and dry your fabric before the first class. You can choose from one of these ten patterns or get in touch if you have something else in mind!


Each student will get specialized help selecting fabric, working through the patterns sizing guide and understanding how to read the back to get everything you need. 


During class time, we will go in depth in selecting sizes, prepping and cutting your pattern and fabric, and constructing and finishing a whole garment!


This class really focusses on construction, so a loose fitting, simple garment is best to start with, so that you can save detailed fitting challenges for a different project. We have a number of appropriate patterns, including basic linen or cotton pants, tshirts, simple dresses.


This class also includes one month of FREE studio rental to work on your project, or another project (it's always a good idea to repeat a project to cement your learning!)
