The How to Make Clothing Program


The How to Use Sewing Patterns Program: A six week course designed to teach you the process of sewing basic garment construction, and how to use, read, and understand a sewing pattern. 

One of the most critical skills you need to know and understand when it comes to sewing your own clothing is the ability to read, understand, and use a sewing pattern effectively. In fact, in garment construction, half the work you do is sewing, and the other half is using the pattern and knowing how it relates to your body, sense of style, and the process of sewing a garment.

And this course is designed to walk your through that process step by step.

The How to Use Sewing Patterns Program is part of the new Fair Fit Fundamentals curriculum and it is a mixture of online and offline learning designed to set you up with an actual practice of sewing your own clothing, so that when you leave class you have the confidence to tackle your sewing projects at home on your own.  

The benefit of this online and offline course, is that you will have access to the videos for as long as you like, so you can revisit the course and lessons again and again. The video resources in this course will apply to all of your future projects, and revisiting the videos will help you to grow in your confidence and expertise.

I want my students to have tools to keep learning as they grow in their sewing, so over the past year, I have been developing and implementing mixtures of online and offline learning. Because sewing, especially sewing your own clothing is a complex topic, I have found that having videos of what we cover in class helps you to be able to revisit the lessons as needed- you don't have to worry about forgetting what you learned in class, rather, you will have a set of video lessons you can reference as often as needed, at your own time, and on your own pace for as long as you need them.

This course is 6 weeks, however, the self paced video learning style is designed to accommodate busy schedules. The program officially begins October 30th, and the advantage is that a lot of the work for the course is completed through weekly video lessons and homework that you can complete before our in person class on November 27th. There is only one in person class you need to allow for your time. Please see below for the class syllabus and outline to see the schedule and confirm your availability. 

How to Use Sewing Patterns Course Syllabus

To participate in this course, you will need to be able to access a computer and internet to watch the video modules. You will also need to buy 2 yards of fabric and a sewing pattern.

Please see more information below for more information on how the course works and please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I can't wait to help you get started sewing your own clothing. 


Here's how it works! Each week I will check in with you and send you weekly video lessons to watch and a short homework lesson to complete. It will take about an hour of your time and you have a week to complete each module. The first part of the course is best taught on video, so you have it to reference for all of your future projects, and is designed to teach you all that you need to know about a sewing pattern, how to read and use it, and how to prepare your fabric for cutting out your garment.

We will meet for our in person class on November 27th from 6:30 to 8:30 PM. We will sew our garment together, teaching you the process and and order in which a garment is sewn. You will learn essential garment construction methods for beginners that apply to most garments, and Ill walk you through your project from start to finish.

And after that, our final module is designed to set you up with next steps so that you can practice on your own before moving on to our more advanced garment construction classes. I want you to know how to practice on your own, and I have a proven methodology to share with you to make sure you practice and implement the investment that you have made to learn how to sew.
