Make your own leggings with Cal Patch

People are often surprised to learn they can make their own leggings, but guess what? YOU CAN! And you don’t even need a serger to sew with knits. Cal will show you how to draft a pattern for this wardrobe essential, based on your own measurements. Then we’ll stitch up a first draft fit sample, adjust our patterns if necessary, and proceed to make a pair of real-live leggings. You’ll never buy them off the rack again! Please have at least advanced-beginner sewing skills, with a few simple projects under your belt.

Class is intended for you to complete on your own sewing machine; we have some available for class use.

Cal Patch has been a maker since she was a Girl Scout in the seventies. She sews, crochets, spins, embroiders, knits, prints, makes patterns, dyes… hence the name of her clothing label: *hodge podge*. Cal has been teaching the textile arts since 2000, at shops and retreats across North America, and now offers online workshops in Pattern Drafting, Sewing and Crochet via Creativebug. After seventeen years of being a New York City dweller, Cal now resides in the Catskills where she is becoming a crafty farmer and growing her handmade wardrobe. Her first book, Design-It-Yourself Clothes, Patternmaking Simplified, was published by Potter Craft. You can see what she’s up to at http://calpatch.com.

Class fee is $200 which includes lunch and snacks. Your materials are not included and can be purchased at Make It Sew with a 10% discount. Materials list will be provided upon registration.
