Beginner Fashion Sewing, Level 2: Pajama Top (for teens & adults)

Start learning to sew garments and clothing for yourself or your family! Using the "Carolyn Pajama" pattern, this multi-session class is geared for new sewers to develop the skills and techniques to build the foundation for successful garment construction.

In Level 1, we constructed comfortable pajama bottoms and learned the basics of pattern reading.
Level 2 will now focus on more sophisticated techniques to create a thoughtfully tailored pajama top featuring a button-front closure.

Level 2: Part 1 - layout & cutting, beginning of garment construction
Level 2: Part 2 -
garment construction continues
2 sessions, 8 hours total

NOTE: Call or visit us if you've already taken Level 1. You'll save $25 when registering for Level 2!
