Sewing Workshops June 2019

Sewing with a Pattern

sewing supplies are laid out on a table for the next project

Do pattern instructions seem to be written in a foreign language? In this “Sewing with a Pattern” class, we’ll review pattern lines and symbols, transferring markings to fabric, interpreting sewing directions together with pattern placement and layout. Students are invited to bring a current garment pattern and fabric to the class together with their questions. There will be time for machine sewing and shopping in the OSF Shop.

Sewing Undergarments

Have you always wanted to make your own well-fitting panties? Join us for a class on undergarment construction—you’ll receive a pattern (close to your size) and instructions for altering your pattern. Students will use the pattern to cut out their panties and receive instructions on how to apply various types of elastic. There will be time to sew and complete one pair of panties.
