Ready to start sewing your own clothes, but not sure where to start? Let's start by learning how to read a sewing pattern! A sewing pattern is essentially the map to create your garment so it's the best place to start. 

This introductory class will break down the basics of garment sewing and help build your confidence in sewing wearable clothing. In this class you'll learn how to take your measurements and how to read a garment sewing pattern. You'll learn how to find your size, tracing your pattern and cutting it out. We'll go over all that goes into preparing your garment for sewing, and we'll look closer at indie sewing patterns we carry, reading a sewing pattern, methods of cutting & tracing, and some basic grading techniques.

We won't be sewing in this class. We recommend this as a primer to beginner garment sewing or after taking one of our beginner sewing classes.

  • How to take your measurements
  • How to read a sewing pattern and understand all the markings
