How to be sure of this class is right for you — can you use a sewing machine and do you feel confident sewing a straight line? If not, take a look at our Beginning Sewing Class Sewing 101. If you can answer yes with confidence and want to learn to use a commercial pattern but they still seem like a whole other language — then this is the class is for you! We make using patterns easy, fun and repeatable. Call (360) 489-1852 or click below to sign up
our next classes start in September.
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.
