Learn to Sew Shorts in a Day!!

DATE: Sunday July 14th 

TIME: 10am-4pm (6 hours of instruction)

Make yourself a breezy pair of summer shorts while learning the basics of reading a pattern with these beginner friendly shorts. Learn how to make patch pockets, an elastic waist waistband, and hemming to your desired length. This class includes the printed paper pattern and instructions so you can make again as shorts or pants!


Patterns:

Pomona Pants/Shorts (Anna Allen Clothing): elastic waist, high rise and loose fitting. They feature no side seams and include patch pockets on the front or back. The waistband is created by folding over the top edge of the pants, which eliminates the extra bulk you would get from a separate waistband seam. View A is a wide leg, ankle length sailor pant with one patch pocket on the back. View B is a loose tapered leg, ankle length pant, also with one patch pocket on the back. View C is the companion shorts to view A, with a 5” inseam and has two patch pockets on the front. This design was drafted for woven non-stretch fabrics.

or for extended sizing:

Birchgrove Pants/Shorts (Muna and Broad):  The Birchgrove Pants are quick and easy-to-sew elastic-waisted pants that are perfect for beginners. They feature a tapered leg and a specially shaped slash pocket that is designed not to gape!

Sew them up in linen for a breezy summer look or a tencel twill for a dressier look.

Material requirements:

2.5-3.5m of a mid-lightweight woven fabric such as linen, silk, cotton canvas, cotton twill, light weight denim. Waistband elastic included in the class.

All participants will receive 10% off deadstock fabrics, prices starting at $5/m

Experience Level: Adventurous Beginner, basic knowledge of the sewing machine required. No knowledge of patterns necessary.
