Intermediate Sewing – Basic Garment Construction – Tessuti Demi Pants

About this workshop

Fight fast fashion and learn to make your own clothes with patternmaker and fashion educator Andrea Streefkerk.

In this 2-day workshop, you will learn a variety of techniques including French seams, gathering, pleating, darts and tucks which will provide a solid foundation for basic garment construction and be used in making a pair of Tessuti Fabrics Demi Pants.

You will be introduced to industrial sewing machines and pressing equipment and will create a set of samplers before beginning the project.

At the end of the workshop, you will leave with your own hand-made and high-quality garment and the knowledge and skills to build your own staple wardrobe of timeless classics.

Tessuti Fabrics have kindly allowed us to use their Demi Pants pattern and images for this class. 

For absolute beginners, we recommend starting with our Beginner Sewing workshop.
