Beginner Garment Sewing: Burnside Bibs 3 Day Workshop

Need a helping hand getting into garment sewing? Craft Habit is here for you :)

In this 3 day workshop, we will go step-by-step through the process of reading a pattern, cutting fabric, and constructing the Burnside Bibs from Sew House Seven (this is one of our best selling patterns). 

Garment making experience is not required, but students should be comfortable using a sewing machine for basic projects. If you have taken any of our sewing classes or camps before, you'll definitely be prepared!

Day 1:
  • Learn to read pattern information BEFORE you buy the pattern - how to determine what size you need, what kind of fabric & how much of it, what notions to purchase.
  • Learn to take your body measurements
  • Learn to lay our your fabric and patterns pieces for cutting. Note - we will begin cutting during class, but some cutting may need to be finished at home before the next class session. 
Day 2:
  • Begin assembling garment
Day 3:
  • Finish assembling your garment
  • Finishing touches
  • High fives and champagne! (optional)
Supplies Needed:
  • You will need to buy 4 yards of Kaleidoscope Cotton Fabric (comes in 60 colors!). Use the code Burnside for 20% off the fabric price.
  • You will also need to buy a spool of matching thread. Choose the Pick My Thread option, and we will find a thread that matches your fabric.
  • If you order your fabric online by end-of-day Tuesday, November 15th, we will wash & dry it for you, and have it ready to use on the first day of class.
  • If you prefer to buy your fabric in person, be sure to shop with us early enough that you can wash & dry your fabric before class.
  • Your class fee includes a printed copy of the pattern for you to keep. The Burnside Bibs size range is 00 to 34.
  • Your class fee also includes the interfacing needed for the pattern, and use of sewing machine and sewing tools in class.

This class is open to ages 14+.
