Sew a Zip-Up Hoodie




Build your sewing skills and make a classic wardrobe staple: a zip-up hoodie!

In this one-day workshop, you'll learn how to:

  • Follow best practices for using a commercial sewing pattern, including size selection, cutting from pattern pieces, and more
  • Sew heavier weight stretchy knit fabrics on a standard sewing machine (not a serger)
  • Install a separating zipper in a garment
  • Insert a drawstring

The hoodie pattern will be provided in class and is yours to keep! We'll be working with the Halifax Hoodie from Hey June Handmade.

This is a confident beginner garment sewing workshop; you do not need to have any experience sewing clothing, but you must have basic machine-sewing skills. Our Sewing 101 class (or equivalent) is a prerequisite for this class.
