In this class students will explore garment construction, make simple alterations to sewing patterns, install interfacings, zippers and buttonholes, plus learn other techniques that will take your sewing to the next level.
Required Tools and Materials: Sewing machine*, fabric scissors, tape measure, 18″ transparent ruler, tailor’s chalk and/or fabric marker, straight pins, pin cushion, seam ripper, and scrap fabric such as an old bed sheet. Pattern and fabric requirements will be discussed in class.
*Sewing machines need not be new or computerized models. Any full sized machine in good working order will suffice. No “miniature” or toy sized machines. Please bring the machine manual to class. If you no longer have the manual on hand, try searching online since manufacturers often make PDF copies available on their websites.
