Get Your Summer FIT!
Hello! We have listened to you! So many of our students in our adult sewing classes have expressed a desire to make their own clothing. Join us for our very first Summer Fit Series! We will be offering a variety of classes, each 3 hours long, so you can really get into creating a "fit" that's right for you! All classes are open for both men and women and most of our patterns are simple and loose and can be gender-neutral and unisex.
Camps are limited to 5 students (18 yrs of age or older); 2 students are required for class to meet. If a class is canceled due to low enrollment, you will receive a full refund.

Camp 7 & 8 My Summer FIT: Skirts!
In this camp, we offer a choice of 2 skirts for you to make. Learn how to make Miette, a gently flared wraparound skirt that ties at the front in a bow. The skirt has a wide overlap at the back (no danger of flashing!) and optional patch pockets. Miette doesn't have a zipper or buttonholes and is easy to fit. This is a great “blank canvas” project that you can customise with decorative topstitching or embroidery. The other option is the Donovan Skirt. The Donovan is a beginner sewing pattern that teaches a variety of sewing techniques and results in a beautiful, everyday garment. This classic elastic waist skirt has the perfect amount of fullness and works in many different fabrics. It has roomy pockets, an optional drawstring, and two views. View A is a midi-length with a modern side slit and View B is a summery above-the-knee length.

Camp 11 & 12 My Summer FIT: Pants!
In this camp, we offer a choice of 3 styles of pants or shorts (or both!) for you to make. The Pomona Pants + Shorts are elastic waist, high rise, and loose-fitting. They feature no side seams and include patch pockets on the front or back. The Lander pattern is a pant and short with a high waist and button fly. The design includes front and back patch pockets, belt loops, and a straight fit through the legs and the Arden Pants are everyday high-waisted pants with loads of versatility. A classic elastic-waist pant with front and back pockets. Views B and C feature a jogger-style cuff in two different widths. The elastic waistband can be topstitched with a drawstring for a more casual look. We love these pants all day, every day, and we know you will too. We bet you can’t make just one pair!
