Intermediate Skill Series

For our students who are comfortable with sewing basic garments from a pattern, Intermediate Skills Series is an opportunity to advance and develop your skill set into intermediate and beyond.  Class will meet for 4 hours x3 sessions on Sundays with our instructor Jane.  Skills covered will include:

  • Buttons/buttonholes
  • Collars one piece/two piece
  • Sleeves
  • Zippers
  • Waistbands (skirt or pant)
  • Pockets
  • Slippery wovens, drapey knits  
Lessons in this series will be project based- i.e. you will learn the techniques while constructing a garment.  We recommend students work through the Carolyn Pajamas by Closet Case Patterns, which includes many of these details.  However, students are welcome to select other patterns they are interested in sewing.  Please consult with an instructor prior to class to determine the appropriateness of the pattern you are interested in.  Class sign-ups will be monthly but students may be permitted to join mid-session as space allows - contact the store to inquire.  Pattern and materials are not included in tuition.
