Beginners to clothing welcome. Some prior sewing machine experience needed.
In this class each student will learn to take their measurements and translate those measurements into a flat paper pattern. The paper pattern will be used to make a muslin (an inexpensive cotton fabric used by designers) mock-up version of the basic A-line skirt. This class is oriented to for all genders. An A-line skirt is a basic pattern that can be manipulated in a number of ways in which we will discuss in class.
Please bring your functioning sewing machine or let us know and you can use one of our 5 Bernina machines. Basic sewing skills are needed for this class as well as an understanding of how your/our machine works. The instructor will have muslin and other basic sewing supplies for sale.
