Learn how to copy an existing garment, create a pattern, and make a muslin to test the pattern. An understanding of garment construction required. Sewing will be done outside of class.

Note: The November dates of this class meet for a longer session (with lunch break) the first day, and a shorter session the second time.

Discovery and Planning

It’s a buzz word (ok, term) you can just google, but we’re going to hold your hand to help you give it a try! After all, aren’t most of us sewing so that we’ve got a closet full of clothes that make us happy and make dressing fun? Or at least less stressful?

Session One: We’ll share our wardrobe capsules and discuss what works for different bodies and why, body shapes, colors, function, and more.

Homework: Go to your closet and answer the same questions for yourself – and have fun!

Session Two: Come to class with your homework and we’ll all evaluate and help you make a plan that works for you and your lifestyle. Patterns will be suggested!
