Demystifying Patterns – Unraveling the Mystery of Reading and Using Sewing Pattern

sew with patterns and learn how


Have you ever wanted to use patterns but became completely lost when looking at the back cover?  The symbols and cutting guide look like a foreign language? Then this is the class for you!

I will teach you about measurements, patterns, indie vs. commercial, fabric choices and more! We will also do a mock pattern (miniature) so you can get comfortable with laying out your pattern pieces and cutting them! Once you cut your fabric, you commit to the shape/size. Let me help it become less intimidating.
