Does the idea of sewing clothes make your brain hurt? In this class, we’ll sew a complete outfit of stylish and comfortable wardrobe staples from beginning to end using the Ruby Top and Luna Pants patterns from Made By Rae. You'll discover that you, too, can master the alchemy of transforming two-dimensional fabric to fit your three-dimensional body. We'll start with reading the pattern and selecting your size, and learn essential garment fitting principles and finishing techniques along the way. You'll finish the class with two stylish and versatile pieces that you won't believe you made yourself!
You will receive print copies of both patterns included in your class fee. Since sewing clothes is all about expressing your unique style, we will have you provide your own fabric (students receive a 10% discount on class supplies purchased at Notion). Using Notion’s detailed video tutorials and the pattern instructions, you will work on the two projects at your own pace. Class participants will then come together for weekly live group video sessions to troubleshoot, share successes, and ask questions. With our support and camaraderie, you’ll have an entire handmade outfit before you know it!
