Garment Academy Session 102 Hidden Details



 Session 102 – The Hidden Details (or The Inside Story)

Seams and seam finishes are the heart and soul of sewing.  Other important techniques that usually are on the inside but seldom seen are facings, and darts. Gathers and pleats are seen on the outside, but there is an inside story to make them.

1 ½ hour class

 Garment Academy

Learning to sew your own clothes is more important now than ever.  With more stores selling online and department stores selling “disposable” clothes it’s hard just finding a decent pair of pants or a t-shirt that even comes close to fitting.  Finding fabric to make our clothes is easier than finding the garments!

Quickly learn to sew by mastering the fundamentals of sewing. Specific techniques will allow you to increase your skill levels. Make the clothes you want to wear!

Classes requirements:

If you have never used or a sewing machine or are very new to one, you will need to take our Sewing Machine Demystified class first.  Please don’t hesitate to talk to us to determine if you need this class.
