Prerequisite: Ready, Set, Sew
or teacher's OK
Sew, you made it through Ready, Set, Sew. Congrats!!
Now you should be ready to get down to good sewing.
In this class you
will be learning more about patterns, how to cut, read them, and
understand what you read. You will be making either a pair of tailored
dress pants, a fitted skirt, or a simple dress.
The pattern suggestions are listed under 'Sew Much More' in the Menu.
You will begin to learn garment construction such as : darts, facings,how to sew a zipper in, and hems.
You should purchase your pattern, fabric, and notions listed on the back of the pattern prior to class. The back of your pattern should show you how much fabric to buy according to your size (not your dress size for Ready-mades but according to your measurements).
Remember to prewash your fabric.
Your pattern may require you to purchase interfacing. Don't purchase it yet. I will tell you all about that in class.
If you have any questions, you know where to find me.
