Saturday Sewing Camps for Kids


Kids' Saturday Sewing Camps

Saturday Sewing Camps are structured and priced the same as the Summer Camps. These are provided as a way for summer camp students to continue the momentum they built up over the summer. These camps are open enrollment, with students free to attend any combination of dates.  Saturday camps are perfect for coming just enough days to work on a favorite project, or for a weekly sewing fix.

Saturday Fashion Camps: Design Your Own Dresses!

Design Your Own Dresses! Saturday Fashion Camps
Dressmaking for girls up to size 12.
An ongoing series of 1-day camps (3 hours each) are part of our new program to teach fashion enthusiasts how to combine technical skills and creativity.  Learn the basic creative skills for turning a fashion idea into a finished garment.  Students will practice basic technical and creative skills, including patternmaking, for turning their ideas into dresses and clothes they can wear.

Here’s what students will learn:

  1. Make a pattern that fits just you. First, make a fitting muslin; then draft your new pattern from your muslin sample.
  2. Make a design plan. Choose the design details for your dress, such as overall style lines, sleeve style, neckline, skirt. Then add extras such as pockets, trims or other decorations.
  3. Make a technical drawing of your dress design; then draft the pattern for your new dress and its details!
  4. Choose and shop for your fabrics
  5. Sew your dress! You will be free to work at home with help from an adult, using the sewing order guide;
    or bring your pattern to sewing class

This class uses a textbook: The Building Block Dress: A Sewing pattern Alteration Guide by Liesl Gibson. It includes a set of pattern templates in toddler sizes up to girls’ size 12.
