Class Description: In this introductory garment sewing class, students will embark on a creative journey to craft their very own pair of lounge/pajama pants with either elastic or drawstring waist. Whether you're a novice to sewing clothing or want to brush up on the basics of working with patterns, this class will equip you with the skills and confidence to tackle this versatile wardrobe staple.

Throughout the course, students will learn fundamental sewing techniques, including how to select needles and thread for different fabric types, take basic body measurements, read and interpret sewing patterns, cut fabric pieces accurately with regards to fabric grain, pin and sew basic and contoured seams with designated seam allowances, and finish raw seam edges. We'll also cover essential garment construction methods such as pants hemming, and creating waistband casings (with buttonholes)!

By the end of the class, students will leave with a completed pair of lounge pants tailored to their unique measurements and style preferences. Whether you're sewing for comfort, fashion, or simply the joy of creating, this class will empower you to bring your sewing projects to life with confidence and flair.
