Have you ever dreamed of becoming a fashion designer? Your dreams can come true! In all of our classes, we walk you through all of the fashion design steps and show you what it takes to be a fashion designer. 

For this season, we have come up with a new twist on a classic design: the Peasant Top!  Such a versatile clothing item that every wardrobe needs, this project is perfect for any young designer who really wants to grow in creating clothes. If you would like a more advanced approach to this project, you can use a trims to create a more intricate design or make the sleeves longer. You will start with sketching and rendering your design. Measuring, pinning and cutting out your design. Already know how to use a sewing machine? Great! Otherwise we will teach you. 

The class fee includes all fabric, trims, notions and use of the sewing machines. If you have your own machine and want to bring it to class and use it that’s great, please do! You can bring your machine starting the second week of class. Sew your garment together then fit the design to work for you, lastly finish the design. At the end of the classes we will hold a virtual fashion show to share with your family. 

So come join us for this fashionable class experience on Thursdays with Fashion First Workshops! We’re always busy learning, having fun and meeting new friends at a distance.

The design options are endless and dependent on your skills you can add other trims and lengths to your silhouette. 

Social distancing will be followed throughout the 8-week sessions to keep us all safe. Face masks are mandatory. Supplies will be passed out and used solely by the individual designer.
