- Sunday, March 8th, 2020. 1:30 - 4:30pm
Craft Habit Raleigh - 2423 Crabtree Blvd, Raleigh NC 27604
This class is open to ages 14+
Skill Level: Advanced Beginner. Must have taken our Intro to Sewing class, or be familiar & comfortable with sewing on a sewing machine, threading a sewing machine, and sewing with seam allowance.
Ease into the world of garment sewing with this excellent introductory class! You will learn to read, understand, and follow a printed pattern - using the very beginner-friendly Skirt No. 1 pattern from 100 Acts of Sewing.
You will be provided with a copy of the skirt pattern, and use of sewing tools and a sewing machine during class.
Students may bring their own sewing machines to use during class, if you would prefer to use your own equipment. Machines must be in good working condition. Please test your sewing machine before coming to class, and arrive at class 20 minutes early to set up your machine.
- 2 1/2 yards of mid-weight plain weave fabric, such as linen, cotton, or natural fiber blend. We highly recommend choosing a solid color fabric for your first garment project. You MUST wash, dry & iron your fabric before coming to class, or run the risk of shrinking your garment.
- 1 spool of cotton thread in a coordinating color (white thread will be provided, please purchase a different color of you prefer)
- 1 yard of 1/2" wide elastic
