BEFORE YOUR FIRST CLASS: Please come to your first class with your fabric pre-washed and you 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.
All supplies are available for purchase at Modern Domestic.
Please purchase supplies in advance of your class. If you plan to shop for supplies the day of your class we recommend arriving at least 30 minutes early.
What is an “Intermediate” level class at Modern Domestic?
You’re no longer intimidated by the idea of reading a pattern and comfortable reading a pattern and have made a number of projects. You would like to learn different methods of zipper installation or how to alter your patterns. You’re venturing into more complicated patterns (e.g., lined garments, plackets, collars, zippered fly). Classes are faster paced and generally require homework.
