During 5 hours of private swimwear lessons, you will learn how to cut and sew a swimsuit based on your size/measurements. We will go over different sewing techniques suitable for swimwear fabrics as well as make slight alterations to a pattern to really personalize the sit. Students can select their own swimwear pattern or we can provide recommendations in advance. If additional instruction is needed we can schedule as needed.

Cost: $375 fee, includes 5 hours of instruction.

Prerequisite: This sewing skill assumes that you have experience sewing from a commercial pattern and have some experience sewing with stretch fabrics.
