Advanced Beginner Classes


Blouse / Shirt Fitting & Construction -- Now that you have learned some basics of sewing facings in the Apron class, you will be ready to sew Pajama top to go with the PJ pants you made in the Beginning Garment Sewing Class.  Or you can make a button front blouse/shirt.  The sample is a boy’s camp shirt, but you can make a ladies shirt, kid’s shirt or a man’s shirt.  This shirt will have a convertible collar and a front facing with buttons and buttonholes.  

This class is broken into 1 session for fitting the pattern & 2 additional sessions for garment construction.  

       

Chore Girl Apron --  Make this cut apron with ruffles for a child or an adult.                                                                                                                                     
It is one-sized to fit all, with plenty of wrap around room on the sides, so you’ll keep   the cookie dough off your             clothes.

This class consists of 2 sessions.  If you need help cutting out the fabric, you can attend the open sewing session prior to this class.  Be sure to sign up for both classes.
