PINAFORE • Beginner Sewing Class, July 23 (12-5 pm) Sunday$60.00
This classic cross-back pinafore is one of our favorite functional cloth pieces. We love how it slips over the head and that there aren't any ties to fuss with. Wear it to work in the studio, kitchen, or garden. Wear it to protect your clothes or to simply look cute. Make it part of your outfit or make it to serve a purpose. However you wear it, we promise you will love it! In this class you'll get the pattern and learn how to make perfect corners and super strong seams for pockets and straps. This project is such a breeze to make that you will probably want to make more than one. These make excellent gifts too!
