This beginner level class will get you comfortable with sewing from a commercial pattern. This class teaches you how to cut out a pattern, make sense of the instructions, and construct a finished well-fit garment. You’ll walk away from the 3 week course with 2 items made by you: choice of a tote bag and a drawstring skirt OR pajama pant. The sewing patterns used in class are yours to keep for future projects. No previous sewing experience is required.

- Tote: 3⁄4 yard heavier-weight fabric for outside of bag and 1⁄2 yard lighter-weight cotton fabric for inside lining of bag
