Understanding Sewing Patterns

Join Kelly McKay to learn the secret language of sewing patterns. Get an overview of symbols, vocabulary, and techniques frequently used in printed patterns, and learn about taking your own body measurements, choosing sizes, and fabrics. Please note, we will not be cutting or sewing fabric in this class session.

Take the knowledge gained in this patterns class and put it to use in our brand new beginner garment sewing class: Skyline Tee Sew Along! Sign up and make yourself some fabulous new clothing!

Supplies Needed:

  • Something to take notes on!
  • If needed, glasses/readers for reading the pattern fine print!
  • If you're taking the Skyline Tee class, bring that pattern with you (or any pattern you're interested in!)
