This Class includes a 6 hour punch card; just enough time to trace out one more pattern from our collection and work it in the studio.  Fabulous!

In this class you will learn how to read and use a pattern.

  • How to buy your CORRECT size,
  • How to understand the ‘language of a pattern’
  • How to use all the funny symbols printed all over it.
  • How to install a zipper

We will also start to tackle the difficult conversations of

  • style and body shape,
  • fabric texture and drape
  • and how to work a garment with repurposed fabrics

After three weeks you will go home with a skirt or a pair of pants you can wear with pride and the confidence to work a simple pattern on your own.
