Have you ever wanted to re-create that favorite black dress or that top you bought 5 years ago and wish that you would have bought two? Well, now's your chance to learn how to re-create that special garment and make it in as many fabrics and prints as you'd like!
During the workshop you will learn:
· how to make a sewing pattern from one of your garments
· how to follow the pattern to recreate your garment
· how to choose appropriate fabrics
· stitches and finishing techniques
Some great options for this class include:
skirts: pencil, a-line
pants: elastic waist, pants with an invisible zipper
shirts: t-shirts, tank tops
Some things to avoid:
button-up shirts, pants with a zipper fly
PROJECTS: Pattern for the garment you’d like to copy, muslin prototype for fit and the final project. Additional sewing and finishing may be needed after class and can be done in our Sewing 102 class. One complimentary class included. * Homework is necessary outside of each class in some cases depending on the project difficulty.
COURSE DURATION: 12 hours + One 3 hour Sewing 102 class
SUPPLIES AND FABRIC: Bring your own dress, skirt, shorts, pants or top to copy, and muslin for your mock-up.
PREREQUISITE: Sewing 101 or basic sewing skills
