Learn to Sew your own Clothes

Presented by Megan Avery

In this 5 week inspiring advanced beginner sewing class, students will learn how to sew - from start to finish - a top, as well as a pair of pants.

We'll use the Remi Raglan Top and Free Range Slacks indie sewing patterns from Sew House Seven. Students will learn how to take proper measurements, construct clothing, how to hem, how to add sleeves, in addition to many other useful sewing techniques. It's helpful to have working knowledge of how to use a sewing machine to take this class.
