The Garment Construction Program is a monthly series of tutor-lead independent sewing projects (3 hours sessions, 4 times per month).  Maximum 7 students per session.

There are 8 Study Units designed to give students hands-on practice with the core skills that will allow them to make garments from start-to-finish on their own. In each unit we will focus on one core skill and students will practice making a garment from start to finish which utilizes that skill. At the end of the 8 units students will be very independent, intermediate-level sewers!

The units are designed to progress in the following order:

  1. Casings
  2. Waistbands
  3. Gathering
  4. Darts, pleats and ruffles
  5. Zippers
  6. Collars
  7. Sleeves
  8. Buttonholes

Materials are included in monthly tuition.
You are welcome to choose patterns and fabric from my pattern library and fabric stash. Or, of course, you may buy your own. Pattern photos shown on the class descriptions are samples only, you can choose any pattern that meets the class criteria.
