Sewing: The Stitch Room

Begin your clothing design and construction education with a hands-on introduction to the design process, garment construction, master patterns, and material/notion options. Instruction starts with the very basics - setting up and operating both a sewing machine and a serger. You will practice taking proper body measurements and learn to read and use master patterns, including size variations and making alterations for a proper fit. You will learn about fashion fabrics, stretch fabrics, fibers, threads, sewing materials, and embellishments so you can make informed purchases for future projects. Expect to learn by doing; you will gain experience with buttonholes, zippers, velcro, shoulder pads, interfacing, waistlines, fabrics, and embellishments as you take a top, pants, stretch skirt, zippered skirt, and Dolman jacket from start to finish. This class is for the fashion-oriented person or individuals who sew for personal enjoyment. Instructor will provide supply recommendations. Projects: Design and create stretch top, pant, and skirt, plus a zippered skirt and Dolman jacket.
