How to be sure of this class is right for your teen: can they: use a sewing machine and feel confident sewing a straight line? If not, take a look at our Teen Beginning Sewing Camps.
If yes: and your teen wants to learn to make clothing, this is the class for them. We learn to decode the commercial pattern so it fits and is fun!
Class is 3 Wednesdays afternoons: Oct 30 -Nov 13 3:30 – 5:30pm enroll here
We learn: to buy the CORRECT size pattern, how to understand the ‘language of a pattern’, how to use all the funny symbols printed all over it and 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 your teen will go home with a garment they designed, made and can wear with pride. AND, the confidence to work a simple pattern on their own.
Class includes 2 hours in the Teen Design program (on a punch card). This will get them in the habit of sewing and thinking about making beyond the class.
