Learn about the design process, reading patterns, cutting fabric from paper patterns and garment construction.
We also cover finishing techniques including hemming, zippers, button holes and working with elastics.
We have patterns to make just about anything here, but if you have a special pattern in mind, you are welcome to bring it along. It's helpful if you email firstname.lastname@example.org us with the brand and style number of the pattern in advance of the first session.
Skill requirements: Clothes Club is geared towards ages 11-17 who have either been to Fashion Camp and/or practice machine sewing regularly at home.
Material requirements: Use of sewing equipment and patterns are included in the cost, however you will need to purchase the main fabrics for your clothing projects. You will receive a 20% discount on materials purchased through both The Makehouse and Gala Fabrics. We do sometime have receive donations of fabric from local sewists, which we offer up to student's from time to time, helping to keep costs down. If material costs are a barrier to joining Clothes Club, please let us know as we can always source within our fabric community.
Equipment requirements: Please note that we provide a sewing machine for you to use in the studio, but you are more than welcome to bring your machine from home. If you’d like to bring your home machine, please remember to bring the manual (and foot pedal/power cord).
Group size: We like to keep this camp cozy and fun, so attendance is limited to 8 students.
We encourage you to send snacks and refreshments as it’s much easier to be creative when you have fuel for the brain!
