How to be sure of this class is right for you — can you use a sewing machine and do you feel confident sewing a straight line?  If not, take a look at our Beginning Sewing Class Sewing 101. If you can answer yes with confidence and want to learn to use a commercial pattern but they still seem like a whole other language  — then this is the class is for you!  We make using patterns easy, fun and repeatable.

In this class you will learn how to read and use a pattern.

  • How to buy your CORRECT size,
  • How to understand the ‘language of a pattern’
  • How to use all the funny symbols printed all over it.
  • How to install a zipper

We will also start to tackle the difficult conversations of

  • style and body shape,
  • fabric texture and drape
  • and how to work a garment with repurposed fabrics

After three weeks you will go home with a skirt or a pair of pants you can wear with pride and the confidence to work a simple pattern on your own.

This class includes a 4 hour punch card that is good for any Open Sew day. This will get you in the habit of sewing and thinking about making what you long for!
