Advanced Beginner - Intro to PDF Patterns - Wiksten Pattern
- Advanced Beginner
PDF patterns are a great way to buy sewing patterns! Many indie pattern companies produce PDF patterns and offer them at half of the printed pattern's usual retail cost. It's an excellent way to build up a collection of patterns at home at a reasonable cost. In this class we will use the Wiksten Tank Top PDF pattern to make a versatile tank top that can also be lengthened to a dress version. In class you'll learn how to print a PDF pattern, learn how to read the assembly markings and assemble the PDF pattern. You will then cut your pattern and fabric and sew your tank top.
