What to expect.....

This series of workshops will focus on building a mini-capsule wardrobe, much like the popular clothing line being sold (and purchased!) on Facebook.  As you know, these items can be pricey and hard to find, but are super comfortable and trendy!

Each workshop will take 2 weeks and produce 1 completed garment. There will be 4 workshops in this series, for a total of 4 basic garments that can mixed and matched! You are also welcome to pick and choose the workshops that fit with your schedule. This capsule collection will include a pair of leggings, raglan shirt, cardigan and a tunic dress. 

Cost is: $65* per 2 week workshop ...or $220* for all 4 workshops (8 weeks/4 garments)

What to expect for the first workshop.......

-Introduction to online patterns

-How to print and assemble a PDF pattern

-How to determine your pattern size

-Techniques for stretch fabrics, including some serger construction

-Best locations for online fabric purchases

-Introduction to choosing the right fabric for your pattern

-How to make a vision board for a coordinating mini capsule

As well as a pair of leggings, made just for you, by you!

What to bring for the first workshop:

-sewing machine (optional, Janome machines will be available)

-laptop/mobile device (optional)

-1.5 yards fabric† and matching thread

-general sewing supplies

Future workshops within this capsule collection will include: a raglan (baseball) shirt, long cardigan, and tunic to create mix and match basics, with lots of options! If you are new to online patterns and/or sewing clothing, this series will be perfect for you. Basic sewing skills required.

†For the first class, you will need 1.5 yards of stretch fabric and matching thread. Leggings require a high percentage of stretch in both directions (4-way). This is something we will discuss in class, but I have included a link to an explanation in the meantime.  jalie.com/blog/how-to-measure-fabric-stretch/

For best (Lul@r*e type) results, I recommend using DOUBLE BRUSHED POLYESTER (DBP) sold by many online fabric stores. I have included links to high quality online sellers. You will be safe buying any of their "DBP". Try to choose a fabric that you might like to incorporate into a capsule wardrobe.
