There are few things more rewarding than wearing a beautiful garment you’ve created with your own two hands. This course will introduce the beginner sewer to the proper use of their machine, an overview of textiles and appropriate fabric selection, and techniques for garment construction from start to finish using a pattern from the instructor’s fashion line. Students will learn handy sewing techniques for updating pre-existing garments, how to follow a pattern, properly cut fabric, fit a garment to their body with basic alterations, and construct clothing using efficient, time-saving techniques from the fashion industry. Leave the course with a garment that fits you perfectly and the skills to take your sewing to the next level. Basic sewing machine skills are required, and students should bring a sewing machine to each class. Students should bring their own supplies; a materials list will be provided prior to the first class.
