WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

Learn to sew PANTS! Join us to amp up your sewing skills in this confident beginner workshop! 

In this two-evening workshop, you'll gain an understanding of sewing from a purchased pattern and learn to work with stretchy knit fabrics. You'll make a cozy pair of pants, custom made to fit your body, and will leave with the skills and confidence to tackle more stretchy garment sewing on your own. 

You'll learn how to:

  • Measure the body accurately to create a perfect fit
  • Work from a commercial pattern, including size selection, deciphering instructions, cutting from paper pattern pieces, and more
  • Understand garment sewing basics such as proper fabric prep, pinning, cutting, and troubleshooting
  • Sew with knit fabric 
  • Sew an elastic waist with drawstring, pockets, and ankle cuffs
  • Become familiar with sewing jargon commonly found in commercial patterns

The pants pattern will be provided in class and is yours to keep! We'll be working with the Hudson Pants from True Bias in this class-- both men's and women's patterns are available!

Fabric and other supplies will be available for purchase in our retail shop at a 10% discount to students. All tools needed to complete this class will be provided and sewing machines will be available courtesy of BERNINA of America

MEET YOUR INSTRUCTOR

 Christine Haynes is a Brooklyn-based sewing author, teacher, and pattern designer. Christine grew up in Saugatuck, MI, a small beach community on the southwestern coast of Lake Michigan, where the arts were part of her daily life. She attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in the department of Film, Video, and New Media. 

Her mother taught her to sew around the age of 10, and it grew from a personal hobby, until it became her main artistic outlet. After selling ready-to-wear garments for many years, Christine turned her focus to teaching others to experience the joy of making clothing for themselves through her patterns, books, and workshops.
