About the Event

Learn to Sew: Overalls Dresses!

This 3-part class is for anyone who wants to learn how to sew or practice (no experience needed!)! There will be 3 sessions needed to finish the dresses. Setting this class series as a one-time-purchase, but please let me know if you'd prefer to pay $30 + tax ($33.08) before each class. Classes are on Tuesdays from 5:30-8:30pm: 8/22, 8/29 & 9/5. 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 (we'll be using McCalls 7831)

-Cutting out fabric

-Applying interfacing

-Using a sewing machine to do basic seams

-Using a serger to finish seams

-Making hand pockets and/or patch pockets (if time allows)


-Adjusting a garment to fit you perfectly

-Applying overalls hardware and stud buttons

Things you'll need/are 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 2 yards (this includes a little extra length just to be safe)

Suggested fabrics: Corduroy, Denim, Cotton Blends, Velveteen

This could be a fun way to use a curtain or large tablecloth too! Seattle Recreative and thrift stores are great places to find textiles for reuse.

8/22 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 this project (curtains, tablecloths, fabric yardage). We'll also iron on some interfacing to stabilize seams. Begin to sew pieces together

8/29 Session 2: Sew up and finish side seams. Begin to sew shoulder straps

9/5 Session 3: Hem & attach hardware

Summit Selvage is located on the corner of 12th Ave and Pike St in Capitol Hill, Seattle. The entrance door will be propped open on the 12th Ave side. 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. Parking is a big challenge, but luckily we're 1 block from the 2, 12, and 11 bus stops, as well as .5 miles from the lightrail station.

Covid: Masks are currently recommended. Thanks for understanding!

Ticket Policy: Let me know if you're unable to make the class as soon as possible! Full refunds given up until 2 weeks before class time, class credit given two weeks to three days before class time.
