Sweatsuit - 3 session weekend
Virginia has time this summer to share her deep love of the sweatsuit and working with sergers so we're offering a three day workshop to help you create your own Sweat Set. So if you've been dreaming of 9 hours at gather here making something truly awesome. Nothing like a long weekend of sewing to create the Sweet Pea sweat set!
We will start our "weekend" on Friday, taking measurements, tracing the pattern (you can totally trace your pattern in advance if you are worried that 9 hours isn't enough time), and maybe starting to cut our fabric. Saturday we'll focus on cutting out the entire set and putting together our shorts/pants. Sunday we'll make our sweatshirt and end of weekend with the first of many sets.
Limited to 4 students (16 yrs of age or older); 2 students are required for class to meet. If a class is cancelled due to low enrollment, you will receive a full refund.
- Level: Intermediate. You are way beyond pj pants and are comfortable using a sewing machine. You have plenty of handmade clothing you are proud of. You have taken serger basics or the equivalent.
- We provide: studio space, tracing paper, tools, machines, serger thread, and expertise.
- You bring: A copy of the pattern, fabric you love (non-stretch knit are best), 2” (5 cm) elastic for waistband, 3/4” (2 cm) elastic for ankles (not needed if you are making shorts!), and a heavyweight knit with at least 20% stretch and high recover (a return to its original width after being stretched) or ribbing knit for waistband, neckband, and cuffs of sweatshirt.
- Class length: 3 hours each day.
Class meets June 24, 25, and 26 from 3 PM to 6 PM.
