The project for this class is a pair of elastic/drawstring pajama style pants. You will learn how to read and understand a commercial pattern and all of its’ symbols. You will determine your proper size as pattern sizes are not the same as ready to wear. Cutting, marking, sewing, pressing and seam finishes as well as simple pattern adjustments will be taught while learning the basic operation of the sewing machine. Machines and pressing equipment are supplied in our bright fully equipped sewing room. For the first class, please come in suitable clothing for taking measurements such as camisole or t-shirt and leggings or slim pant. Ten hours total time.
