Garment Sewing


Afraid to venture into sewing your first knit garment? No need to worry when you have someone to guide you through the process! We?ve picked two different top patterns that can be made in knit, one fitted style (K3766) and the other is a loose fitting top (V8877), so that you can choose which you would prefer to make. Either garment can be made using a regular sewing machine or a serger (see my recommendations in details listed below), so both techniques will be covered in class. Hems can be made on either a coverstitch machine (if you have one or that option on your serger) or a regular sewing machine. In class you will learn how to choose the correct pattern size, cut out your pattern and fabric, and then learn the techniques for sewing knits on your garment. The class is 4 1/2 hours long and class size is limited to 4 students. If you have any questions about the class, please email Catherine at brooklynstitchery@gmail.com.

Cost: $ 135.00
Ready to sew your first garment but don't want to commit to a fitted style? In this class you will have a choice to either make an on trend gathered skirt or a pajama pant, both with an elastic waist and perfect for the beginner sewist. We will teach you how to choose the right pattern size for your body, read the instructions given with the pattern (because sewing has it's own language), cut out your pattern and fabric, then walk you through the steps to complete your skirt or pant. You must have prior sewing experience or have taken Catherine's Beginner Sewing or Quick Start Machine Sewing class. Class is 6 hours long, split between two 3 hour sessions. Class is limited to 4 students.

Cost: $ 180.00
This workshop is for you if you are making your own clothes, but the end product still doesn't fit correctly. We will explore what to look for in relation to the fit of a garment, such as balance and proportion, and learn how you can correct your pattern. Each student must bring a garment (or muslin) that they have made to try on in class along with their commercial pattern. Catherine will review each garment on the student (be prepared to try your garment on in class) and discuss how it needs to be corrected. Then she will teach each student how to make that correction on their pattern. All materials needed are included in the cost of the class. Bring up to 2 garments and the accompanying patterns. * This is a small class and limited to 4 students. *If you have any questions about what type of garments to bring, please contact Catherine at brooklynstitchery@gmail.com.
