Class: Absolute Beginner Garment Sewing Series with Bailey, Starts Monday March 11, 5:30-8:30 pm (4 sessions)


Let's jump into the world of garment sewing together. Join Bailey for a Beginner's Garment Sewing series where you will go step by step, in a slow paced class, to learn the basics of garment sewing. We will be making the Matchy Matchy Smock Top as a reversible top. A straight forward versatile garment that you'll want to make again and again! You'll choose whether you want to make it a tie closure or a button closure. 

We ask that you are able to thread your sewing machine, wind and insert the bobbin, and sew a straight stitch and back-tack. No previous garment sewing is required!

Skills taught include: 

  • Knowing your tools
  • Choosing the right fabric
  • Machine 101 refresher
  • Taking your measurements
  • Choosing correct sizing
  • Cutting out fabric
  • Applying interfacing
  • Ironing Techniques
  • Following a pattern
  • Pattern Manipulation
  • Sewing a reversible garment (garment with lining)
