Copy Cat Sewing Workshop - WW-4Kathy Ruddy
Level: All levels, Hands-on
Category: Pattern Making
Machine(s): not required
Learn a series of new techniques which enable you to sew clothes just like the ones you already own and love. In this longer-form interactive class, you'll discuss favorite garments of fellow students (maybe yours!), identify the reasons they're so well liked, then decide what to copy and how to do it. Explore Kathy's tried-and-true steps for copying sleeves, darts, seams, and gathers, learn to identify grain line, and more, as you discover how to create a whole new wardrobe -- inspired by your favorite looks and clothes. Learn to add facings, seam allowances, hemlines, smooth curves and more. You'll learn about choosing the right fabrics, and how to correctly add details like ruffles, pleats, and pockets to make a garment more interesting and more "you".
Kit/handout Fee: $25 (Paid to the teacher in the classroom)
Kit includes: Tutorial, Drafting pen, and Seam Allowance Ruler.
Student supply list: A new box of Waxed paper, Cut Right Brand, permanent felt marking pens, paper scissors, Magic Transparent tape (green label) pins, measuring tape. AND: a pair of jeans, slacks or skirt with slash side pockets and a garment with details you want to copy. You can come to class without garments, but Kathy says you get the biggest bang for your buck when you bring what you want to copy! She will review the collection of garments and pick from those to demonstrate her waxed paper techniques for copying ready to wear.
