Sewing 102: Arlo Track Jacket
Tuesday, August 1st @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$215
So you know how to operate a sewing machine, but when you bought your first clothing pattern, you couldn’t make heads or tails of it… Worry not! In Sewing 102: Track Jacket, our expert sewing instructor Hayley will teach you how to read and alter a pattern as she guides you through the construction of this oh-so soft, lightweight track jacket!
In this class, you will learn about:
– reading, using, and altering your pattern
– measuring yourself for your pattern
– cutting your fabric
– working with stretch / elastic fabric
– pockets + zippers!
– using the zig zag stitch
This is a two-session class. The first session is three hours and focuses on altering your paper pattern and cutting your fabric. The second session is six hours and focuses on sewing your fabric pieces together and completing the construction of your jacket. Session date/times are:
Session 1: Tuesday, August 1st – 7pm-10pm
Session 2: Saturday, August 5th – 11am – 6pm
By the end of this class, you will have officially become “pattern literate”, and you’ll leave with an amazing jacket, as well as your own sewing pattern to use on future projects. We will be using the popular Arlo Track Jacket pattern from Friday Pattern Company. This pattern is good for sizes XS-7X and length sizes of 22in, 24in, or 26in.
