Stretch Essentials - Hudson Pants
Sewing with Stretch fabrics is very quick and easy. We just need to get started! Learn all the essentials in this 6.5 hour workshop, and walk away with a super cosy pair of Hudson Pants!
Stretch sewing is all about tension, needles and the right stitch. We'll look at those first to understand the theory.
Then we'll get cracking and cut out our cosy pants (see LOADS of examples here). We'll focus on seam allowances when we sew it up along with perfecting those ribbed necklines.
Once you have these skills mastered, you can take on any stretch project with confidence and ease!
Skill level: You will need to know how to thread and run your sewing machine and have a basic grasp of sewing with seam allowances and the construction of a garment.
What you will learn
- Why we use a ballpoint needle and a special stitch, What fabrics are best to use

- Construction including pockets
What you will get
- 6 hours of expert tuition with only 3-6 students in the class
