This class is geared toward beginner level sewers who have never worked with patterns and making clothing (or, you did once or twice a while ago, but want a refresher). You will learn to read pattern directions, and cut out and sew together a simple pair of unisex pajama pants or elastic waist skirt using a pattern provided by the instructor. (skirt pattern here, pants pattern here). All you need to bring to class is the fabric and thread--no need to puzzle over which size pattern you are or how much fabric to get!
In addition, you will learn to operate a sewing machine in order to sew your garment together--NO SEWING MACHINE EXPERIENCE REQUIRED! How sweet is that?

Please note: I do have cats at my studio, and I make sure to vacuum before classes, but you may want to take allergy medicine if you are allergic.
