make*do*mend: Pattern 101 - Tuesday, November 5, 5 to 6 p.m.

$ 25.00

Now a required one-time class for our new apparel students, we have created this short one-hour class/demonstration so that we can more readily set you up for success during your next/first apparel class with us. Select classes include this as part of your registration. During this hour, you will bring your intended pattern of choice and learn the correct way to prepare it and you for class. You’ll see how to most accurately assemble (if a PDF), trace and cut out your pattern.

Once you’ve completed this session, you can trace out your pattern and then use it to apply to your fabric and cut out your fabric prior to class, so that you’re set up to finish your garment!

Experience Level: Basic Sewing Skills, ready for apparel sewing

Materials Needed:

  • Your chosen pattern
  • Tracing Paper, we highly recommend Swedish Tracing Paper for its sewable nature and strong enough texture to hold up to frequent folding, rolling, etc.
  • Pen

Cost: $25; gratis if already registered for the following classes: Pants No. 1, Dress No. 2, Willow Tank, The Wiksten Shift and Woven Tees

This class also includes one hour of studio time to use for tracing out the pattern and prepping for class. Included studio hours are allotted to the specific class and not available for carry-over or pooling of hours.
