Athletic Set Live Virtual Workshop // Starts Dec 2
Is your activewear starting to look a little... worn? Time to step up your game and make a special bra & leggings set that you'll be excited to change into, whether you're doing YouTube workouts or just need some comfy pieces to layer under your winter clothes. Join us for this live virtual workshop on Zoom to make your own at home!
Workshop project: Participants will create two garments:
- Avery Leggings by Helen's Closet. Available in sizes 0-30. These are fitted leggings with a mid or high-rise option, a crotch gusset for wider range of motion, and an elastic-supported waistband to keep them in place.
- Sophie Hines Axis Tank (view 1). Available in sizes XXS-3X. This is an unlined cropped tank bralette with fabric bands instead of elastic. Scoop or high neck options. Use as a sports bra or a cute layering piece under oversized sweaters.
- Sewing with knits on a regular sewing machine or a serger
- Sewing a gusset
- Attaching elastic and fabric bands
- Sewing a waistband
- Topstitching and hemming
Skill Level: Advanced Beginner to Intermediate. You MUST already feel comfortable threading and operating a sewing machine and sewing at an accurate seam allowance. It's okay if you're new to sewing garments, but you should feel somewhat comfortable cutting out fabric on your own since that will be required ahead of class.
Virtual Class Info: This is a VIRTUAL CLASS hosted live on Zoom. After registering, you will receive an email from the instructor with Zoom access instructions as well as the supply list and any other information you may need to participate. You will log in at the designated times, and the instructor will walk you and the other participants through each step of the construction process. We will record each Zoom meeting and you can re-watch any part of the class, so even if you need to miss part of the live class you can still catch up. All students may be expected to do up to an hour of extra "homework" in between sessions to stay on pace.
Pattern and materials not included. You will receive the supply list from the instructor with details about how to get the pattern and what fabrics to search for. You will be expected to cut your fabric ahead of time so the class will focus on sewing only. We'll send you a quick video ahead of time showing you how to cut your fabric.
Details: 3 sessions; 2 hours each
Location: Online! You will need to download Zoom to your computer or device.
Dates & Times: Weds Dec 2 (6-8pm), Sun Dec 6 (5-7pm) & Weds Dec 9 (6-8pm).
