Sewing - Intermediate Class

Sewing - Intermediate Class


**Prerequisite: beginner sewing class or equivalent experience on a sewing machine. If you’ve never used a sewing machine this class will be too advanced. Please contact the instructor if you’re not sure if you’re ready for this class:

Learn how to work from a store-bought pattern as we work through making your very own Vogue skirt or a simple pair of pants in a fabric of your choice. All students will use the same patterns, but you will have several options for customizing it to your own style and shape.

You will also learn a variety of seam types and seam finishing techniques and we’ll discuss which are best used for various fabrics.  

No materials are required for the first class, but you will need purchase and bring fabric to the second class. We will discuss what and how much to buy.

6 weeks - Tuesdays, 7pm-9pm

Starting: May 28th - July 9th (This session will skip June 11th)

Instructor: Jane Kennedy

Jane has been sewing professionally for nearly 20 years. Her widely varied job experience, as well as many years spent as a patternmaker, gives her a broad knowledge of garment creation.  Her experience ranges from making custom wedding gowns, to tailoring Chanel suits for the editor of Vogue, to making body armor for the US Military, to sewing lingerie for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. 

While her background is in couture sewing techniques, her practical approach to teaching sewing makes it accessible and fun for everyone. 

 “If you want to be fussy and perfect, that’s great. If you want to just get through it and prove to yourself you can make something with your own hands, I’m down with that too. And if you want to ask a million questions, I applaud your thirst for knowledge and will happily answer them.”
