Burnside Bibs, Thursdays, July 5, 12, 19 & 26, 6 - 9 pm
Level: Advanced Beginner
Description: These stylish and feminine overalls feature back waist darts, an invisible side zipper opening, and wide legs that can be made full length or cropped. We will be making Version 1 in class, which is a slightly more fitted version. You will learn how to fit a garment to your body measurements, how to finish seams with a serger, how to create darts and how to install an invisible zipper on a garment.
BEFORE YOUR FIRST CLASS: Please come to your first class with your fabric pre-washed and your Version 1 pattern pieces traced. If you need help figuring out what size or sizes to trace, or how to grade between sizes, email firstname.lastname@example.org about connecting prior to class to get your questions answered. We will check your measurements in class and adjust your traced pieces if needed. Please bring your original pattern and tracing paper to the first session in case we need to make adjustments to your traced pieces. Once we have looked over your traced pieces we will cut fabric together during class.
In the first session of class, we will re-measure you and confirm that the size/sizes you traced were indeed correct and make pattern adjustments as necessary. I will have you baste your traced pieces together in order to do a paper fitting in class. You will need to wear or bring leggings, spandex pants, or dark tights to the first session (something snug you would feel comfortable having others see you in without another garment over it. I will be happy to step into the restroom with you for privacy's sake if you don't want to do the fitting portion in view of the rest of the class.
After we have completed the paper fitting we will cut fabric together in class. Please do not cut your fabric prior to class in case we need to adjust your pattern.
