Maximum class size: 8 people
Supplies required: Garments you would like to learn how to copy, pen & paper for taking notes
Prerequisites: Some experience with making clothes already (such as the Working with Patterns class, Perfect Fit Skirt, or having self-taught garment construction) is highly recommended. You will be learning how to create an accurate pattern for a garment in this class but you won’t actually construct it during the class (that can take many more hours or cutting and sewing). It helps to have some background with understanding what a pattern is, what grainline is and why it’s important, and how pattern pieces connect to form an article of clothing so that you don’t feel lost in the class.
