Advanced Beginner: Self-Drafted Hoodie, Sundays, September 15th & 22nd, 10am-2pm

Availability: In stock (8)

Instructor: Lori Caldwell

Skill Level: Advanced Beginner*, ages 15 and up

Class Length: 2 Sessions, 4 hours each session


The focus of this class is working with knits and self-drafting a garment. In class you’ll learn how to take measurements, draft a pattern, cut, and construct your own simple hoodie. 

We encourage sewists who are familiar with wovens to give this class a try! You’ll gain the knowledge you need to work successfully with knits on a sewing machine and serger, and will walk away with a hoodie to wear for the upcoming cool weather.


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. Please note that our store hours are Monday-Saturday, 10am-5pm. 

Supply List:

- 3 yds Sweatshirt Fleece (Main Fabric)

-  1 yd Rib Knit 

- Swedish Tracing Paper 

- Coordinating Spool of Mettler Metrosene All-Purpose Polyester Thread 

- 4 Coordinating Spools of Maxi Lock Serger Thread

- Jersey Needles

*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.
