Sew Your Own Wardrobe
Create a unique garment and learn ready–to–wear sewing techniques. We’ll review techniques for machine and hand sewing, measuring for personal fit, garment design, pattern use, fabric selection as well as manipulation, sewing tools and terminology. Learn how to read a pattern, use proper layout and cutting techniques, traditional and modern stitch methods (including using a serger), marking and transferring, installing zippers, buttonholes, pockets, and seaming and finishing techniques.
