Friday is for garments. You know I love Sonya Phillip’s 100 Acts of Sewing patterns, so we’re making her pants.

If you’ve never sewn an inseam or encased elastic, this is a great class. Heavy on technique and designed to get you sewing in your own space (that’s how you get better!), we’ll walk through the pattern from beginning to end in a stress-free, fun 3-part class.

This class involves "homework". Don't worry, no grading, but you will need access to a sewing machine and be able to complete some sewing between classes. 

Skills Requirement: Must be comfortable with a sewing machine, sewing straight lines, changing direction when sewing, and stitching at a moderate speed.

Skills Learned:

  • Pattern Tracing
  • Hemming
  • French Seaming
  • Edge Stitching
  • Elastic Encasement

Required Materials and Supplies: Purchase fabric for this workshop from Evanston Stitchworks at a 15% discount.

  • Your own copy of 100Acts of Sewing Pants No. 1 Pattern (It’s a legal thing)
  • Reguired fabric yardage according to pattern size. We recommend quilting weight or other lighter woven cotton fabric for this project. No rayon and nothing with stretch.
  • Coordinating all purpose thread

We will Provide:

  • Pattern Ease Swedish Tracing paper for tracing your pattern (cutting patterns is a no-no!)
  • 1” non-twisting elastic for your waistband
  • Neutral, white or black thread and the use of a sewing machine and tools while in the studio.
