This class will teach you the basics of sewing. Students will learn to use the sewing machine, examine patterns and pattern layouts, learn sewing terms and create samples for their sewing book. Projects will include pants with an elastic band (PJ's) and a sectional quilted tote bag. If time remaining students will also make a zipper pouch.
This class builds on the lessons from the beginner level class. However, students will learn zipper insertion, darts, hand-stitching, seam finishing, and more. Students will have the choice of making a skirt, pant or dress (without a collar or sleeve).
Advanced students will learn tailoring techniques such as pleats, tucks, lapels, and set-in; all techniques that add to the value of their garment! Typically students make a lined blazer or jacket. Those ready to move on will learn how to completely modify a pattern using basic patterns, such as an A-line skirt. Students will change the size, design, or look of the garment to make it their own!
