SKU: N/A Categories: , , Tags: , ,

In this class we will take what you have learned in Sewing 101/102 and apply those skills to clothing. We will be loosely following a pattern in order to familiarize you on sewing with patterns.

The class starts by reviewing your measurements and adjusting the pattern to suit your body. Most of the class will be spent sewing your dress together. We will be learning finishing techniques necessary for sewing clothing. Your clothing goes through a lot of wear and tear as well as washing. We will teach you how to create a garment that looks like it came right from the store and last countless wears.
