About the Event
This 3-part class is for anyone who wants to level up their sewing game! Some experience is recommended, but not required!
There will be 3 sessions needed to finish the corsets. Setting this class series as a one-time-purchase, but please let me know if you'd prefer to pay ($34.91) before each class. Classes are on Mondays from 5:30-8:30pm: 10/30, 11/6 & 11/13. There'll be 1 make up session added if you're unable to attend one of the dates.
Things you'll learn/practice:
-Understanding a sewing pattern
-Cutting out fabric
-Applying boning (optional!)
-Using a sewing machine to do basic seams
-Applying binding finishing
Things you'll need/are provided:
A modified version of the Spearmint Corset from Mood fabrics will be provided
I'll have some upcycled fabrics for you to chose from at the studio in neutrals and prints! If you'd prefer to chose your own fabric, you'll need:
-1 yd of fabric for the outside & 1 yd for the inside
Suggested fabrics: Midweight Denim, velveteen, cotton, twill,corduroy, satin with some body to it
This could be a fun way to use a curtain or large tablecloth too! Seattel Recreative and thrift stores are great places to find textiles for reuse.
-2 yards of 1/4"-3/8" cord or ribbon
-2 yards of bias tape
Session 1: Use a class-provided sewing pattern to cut out your choice of materials. Feel free to bring your own material, or choose from some upcycled options at the studio. Seattle Recreative is a great place to get secondhand fabric. Thrift stores also have a great selection of linens and fabrics that'd be great for jackets (curtains, lightweight blanket, tablecloths, fabric yardage). We'll also iron on some interfacing to stabilize seams. Begin to sew seams together
Session 2: Finish sewing seams togther and attach at top neckline
Session 3: Finish with binding & grommets

The space is down the stairs and the last door on your left. The basement is shared with dance studios, and has unisex bathrooms on the third floor.
