You'll be guided how to properly cut, fit and construct a fun and flirty well-fitting garment that you will love to wear this Summer and Fall!


Be prepared - purchase your supplies online or in person before class begins! Class supplies are available for purchase at Modern Domestic. To purchase supplies online and pick up the day of your class, just select NE Alberta Store for pick-up. To purchase supplies in store, we recommend allowing at least 45 minutes to shop.

Supply List:

- 3-4 yards Cotton or Linen Fabric 

- 1 to 2 yards of 1.5” wide Elastic

- 1 spool of Mettler Metrosene All-Purpose Polyester Thread

- 1/4" yard of Light Weight Shape Flex fusible interfacing

- Grid or Dot Tracing Paper

*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.


*Skill Level:  Advanced Beginner - You have a good handle on the basics and are ready to dip your toe into more challenging waters. You’re still fairly new to sewing from patterns and could use help with how to manipulate the pattern to get a better fit. You want to add some new skills to your repertoire (invisible zippers, setting-in sleeves, sewing with a serger, etc.). Classes generally require homework.
