Welcome to Garment School! This is a 5 class course taught by our very own Jamie. This multi week course will explore different types of fabric, pattern reading and garment construction. You will make 2 well constructed garment pieces that you are sure to love for years: The Strata Top by Sew Liberated (up to B54.5", W48.5", H57"), and Pants No. 1 by 100 Acts of Sewing (up to W54", H64"). These two pieces are what we in the garment sewing world like to call "secret pajamas": they look put together but are as comfy as pajamas! They are sure to become staples in your wardrobe.
In the first class, which will take place on a Sunday, you will shop for your fabric, review the patterns, and cut your pattern pieces to size. Jamie will guide you in choosing fabrics that suit your tastes and that work well for the style of garments you're making. You will construct the garments over the course of the final 4 classes, which take place on Wednesday evenings.
