Muslin and Fitting Class

Coming Soon

As essential as a muslin is to a well fitting garment, it's so tempting to skip this step when all you want to do is make something lovely.

A well fitting muslin is an essential step in sewing. They let us work through the process of construction without wasting expensive fabric, fine tune fit, and make adjustments, before we begin to sew our actual garment.

This two day class is focused purely on the making of a usable muslin (s) for the garments of your choice- you will learn how to create, fit, and adjust as many as time allows, so that you don't have to make them when you sew at home.

And if you already routinely make muslins, but struggle to fit them correctly - bring those too!

These muslins then become our new usable patterns, so you'll be able to sew with confidence.

Basic cotton is included in this class, as well as all notions and pattern paper. We just ask that you bring the physical patterns that you would like to use to begin. 

Each day includes lunch.

Duration: Two Days over a weekend - 10am -6pm


What's Included

Muslin, pattern paper and basting threads

Use of all studio sewing & serger machines, irons, pressing tools, scissors, and more

Complimentary snacks and drinks throughout the day

FAQ's

What level should I be sewing at to take this class?

This class is for a confident beginner and up.

How many students are there per class?

This class will be capped at six students in order to maximize learning and give everyone lots of individual time.

How much 1-1 time will I get?

Each students will get as much time - both as a group and individually - as they need in order to construct their garment. The aim is for each student to complete their garment having fully understood each step, so they can build off their new skillset for future individual projects.

Can I bring my own sewing machine and/or notions?

Yes! If you have a sewing machine you love to use, you are welcome to bring it. If you have a machine that you do not use often and need help with, then please plan on using the studio machines.

Scissors, pins, threads, etc are all supplied but if you have your own favorites, then of course, bring those!   We just ask that you label them and take full responsibility for your items while in class.

Will I finish my garment in class?

We try to make sure all projects can be completed in the time allotted unless otherwise stated when booking.

Some of the ongoing classes and workshops may have the potential for some voluntary homework or the option for extra learning but it cannot be guaranteed that any garment, item, or project will be completed in its entirety during the physical time spent in the studio.

What refreshments and snacks will be available?

Local treats, king cakes, bagels for breakfast, coffee and tea throughout the day... and a BYOB if you feel like celebrating at the end of a fun class. There is a small fridge, a Keurig, water cooler, microwave, and toaster in the studio and these can be used throughout the day.

As we are in the Quarter, there are lots of food options as well as delivery, so we will make a list of those available to you before lunchtime rolls around.

You are also welcome to bring snacks and lunch to eat at the studio if you prefer.
