Hudson Pant, Mondays, April 23, 30 & May 7, 6-8:30pm
Skill Level: Beginner, ages 18 and up
The Hudson pattern is a modern take on the classic sweatpants. It has front pockets, an elastic waist, drawstring, and cuffs at the bottom. The urban fit of these pants leaves a bit of extra room around the hips and then tapers into a skinny leg. In this class you will gain confidence and skills working with knit fabric and learn how to adjust a pattern to fit your body measurements. You’ll learn how to make professional looking seams on a serger and how to successfully work with knits on a sewing machine.

All supplies are available for purchase at Modern Domestic.
Please purchase supplies in advance of your class. Make sure to pre-wash your fabric in advance of class. This prevents possible fabric shrinkage that could otherwise make your finished garment too small. If you plan to shop for supplies the day of your class we recommend arriving at least 30 minutes early.
What is a “Beginner” class at Modern Domestic?
You’ve taken a class or two and are starting to get comfortable with the basics. You know what a seam allowance is, you’ve sewn a little on your own, but you still need a little help with remembering how to thread the machine and wind a bobbin. These classes usually have little if any homework to complete outside of class time. The prerequisite for any Beginner class is a Sew Basics class, Learn to Sew class, or equivalent. This skill level is not for people who have never used a sewing machine before.
