About this Event

In this class you will learn how to:

Read a Pattern Envelope to purchase the correct types and amounts of fabric
Understand the pattern piece layouts instructions on the fabric
Understand basic pattern terminology and symbols
Customize the pattern to fit your own personalized measurements before cutting the fabric

You will also get tips on making tissue paper pattern transfers and muslin test garments.

Finally, you will work with a partner to take each other's measurements so you can leave with you own personalized clothing measurements.

Special Considerations and Warnings

You will work with a partner to fill out your physical measurements, so close physical contact will be a necessary part of the class.

Please wear comfortable clothing that will not interfere with the taking of measurements.
