If you have purchased new, costly patterns from a variety of companies, and are left asking yourself, “why do I have to go on the company website to get all of the directions?” Then this is the class for you. Pattern companies, the established, as well as the new start-ups, have eliminated the necessary information from the instruction sheet included with the pattern: Proper figure measurements; Pattern layout, pinning, and cutting for a variety of fabrics; Alteration techniques; Step by step sewing techniques that give the professional finished look. Missed these tips or need a refresher? Are you a new sewer and didn’t understand how to use the pattern to get a proper fit and finished look? Then register for this class. Pattern direction sheets will be provided in class for instruction purposes.
