The four garments we focus on are the wrap dress-no gaping, not a lot of fabric, easy construction, luxe sweatshirt-not your grandma’s sweatshirt!-fun fabrics, embellishment, no band options, yoga jacket-what everyone’s wearing, mix up fabrics, your new go to “sweater” and loose pant-made from a knit it’s your best pj pant or something fancy and you’ve got a base for holiday tops.
You may choose to make all or one of them. You will most likely not finish the garment in one class but can continue at home or at the next class. We will begin each class with tips and techniques for knits and the specific pattern and then help you with pattern and fabric selection or construction depending on where you choose to begin.
