You’ve been sewing garments from patterns and are ready to take your sewing skills to the next level — enter draping and dressmaking. During 4 hours of private draping lessons, you’ll learn techniques for creating a custom dress in a simple silhouette. One-on-one, we’ll create a muslin drape, transfer it to pattern paper, and cut the pattern from fashion fabric.
Cost: $300, covers 4 hours of instruction.
Prerequisite: This class assumes that you have experience sewing commercial patterns.
