Introduction to Garment Sewing for Teens 12+ July 9 -13 2-5 pm


Learn how to read a pattern, select fabric, sew a muslin, fit the muslin, and sew your garment.  You will select a pattern with the instructor's approval and trace and cut out the muslin for the pattern and sew it together for fit.  You will learn minor pattern modification, and muslin fitting.  You will then sew your garment.  At the end of this class, you should have the knowledge and confidence to go on to sewing more garments, why not sew a wardrobe?

For the first day of class, you will need to bring (pattern included in class price):

  • a pencil,
  • notebook,
  • pins,
  • scissors,
  • Swedish pattern paper,
  • and 3 yards of muslin,
  • Later in the week, you will need to purchase fabric, take it home and wash it.

During the first class we will pick out a suitable beginner pattern from a selection of patterns.  The class price includes the pattern price.

Later in the week, you will choose your fabric to make your garment after you have made the muslin and adjusted the muslin and the pattern to fit you.  You will need to choose and purchase your fabric and take it home and wash it.
