3 Week Series: Beginning Sewing / Skirt

Instructor: Wendy Ohlendorf, Ohlendorf Atelier

Fee: $180

In this 3-part class series you will explore garment construction and begin to analyze your personal fit preferences.

The class will begin by learning the basic skills required, such as reading the pattern, placing the pattern on the fabric, and determining appropriate fabrics and notions for the project.  The class will conclude by constructing your own A-Line skirt, perfect for spring!

Bring your questions, your own sewing machine (and it’s accessories), and the basic sewing kit (see emailed list, or pick up a printed kit list in the Ohlendorf, atelier studio located inside the Venue).

The pattern for this project will be provided. The materials list will be discussed at our first class.
