4 Week Adult Garment Sewing Bootcamp

Interested in sewing garments? In our 4 week workshop you will learn hands on while making all the basics of sewing, from threading your machine to a completed garment. 

Week 1- Sewing machine basics refresher while making a make up bag/ zipper pouch. This lined little bag will get you more comfortable with your machine.

Week 2- Pattern Reading and Layout, we will be learning hands on all the pattern symbols, sizing, taking proper measurements and starting to cut out our (adult or children’s) pants or shorts. Patterns will no longer be an unsolved mystery.

Week 3- Recap on layout, checking our work, discussing marking tools, starting to sew the base of our PJ pants.

Week 4- All about finishing techniques, hemming, elastic, elastic casings and finishing our pants. If there is time left we can make a sleeping mask from the straps.

No previous sewing experience necessary. Max 8 students. Teen- Adult

4 x 2 hour workshops

Sewing machines can be provided, if your machine doesn’t work we ask you use one of ours and not hold up the class.
