Advanced Beginner - Copy Your Clothes
- Advanced Beginner
Do you have a favorite top, dress, or skirt you'd love re-create to wear again and again? In this 6 hour class over two sessions, you will learn to create a pattern from a favorite garment in order to recreate it as many times as your heart desires! Please bring 3 fairly simple favorite garments that you'd love to be able to copy. During your first class Brittani will help determine which one is best to copy in the class (nothing too complicated please). Brittani will then show students how to create a pattern from their garment. In the second session of the class you will then learn to sew a muslin version of your garment with guidance from Brittani. *Please note, the goal of the class is to create the pattern of the item you wish to copy. In the 2nd class you will begin to sew a muslin but may need to complete it outside of class.
