This class is for the new sewer who is eager to make their first garment! Students will complete a raglan-style knit sweatshirt using the Linden sweatshirt pattern from Grainline. The goal of this course is for students to feel comfortable working with knit fabrics as well as commercial patterns. Students are asked to trace and cut their paper pattern in their desired size BEFORE coming to class but do not cut your fabric. Cut out paper pattern only.
LEVEL: Advanced Beginner: Prerequisite: Sewing 101 or equivalent experience.
Students are encouraged to bring their own machine if they have one. Alternately, students may use one of our classroom machines for this class. We have Juki machines that are perfect for this class.
Please note: We highly recommend you wash and dry your fabric before coming to class to avoid shrinkage after your garment is complete!
We require you to trace (optional) and cut out your paper pattern in the size you wish to make during class.
Optional Tools: (These tools are great if you have them. The shoppe will have these available for your use during class)
