Swimwear that Fits Swimwear-Making Class (2 days)

Overview

Swimwear that Fits Swimwear-Making Class (2 days)

Everyone needs a good swimsuit and it’s even better when it fits! If you have a large bust, a small bust, wide hips or a long torso, learn to adjust the pattern to fit you perfectly!  Choose one of two styles – princess line or a plain tank style (maillot).  If you have made a bra, bring your pattern and make a bathing suit with a built-in bra. We supply the pattern and we do the fitting – you do the sewing.

Learn to make swimwear and have the pattern professionally fitted to your body, at our Swimwear that Fits Swimwear-Making Class. Beverly V. Johnson has created her own swimsuit patterns, that uses a built-in bra for interior bust support. You will choose one pattern from the Denise pattern – either a one-piece tank suit or a princess line suit. Then you will use your own bra pattern to create a built-in bra for the inside of the suit. It is not difficult to make a swimsuit once you know the few tricks that we will teach you. The pattern and class notes are included in the price of the class.

Rental machines are available for $25 if you don’t want to bring your own machine. Just let us know so we can have one set up for you.

$250.00 CAD

• Class begins at 10 am and ends at 4:30 pm. Doors open at 9:30 am.

You must know how to sew and be familiar with your machine. We will teach you how to sew with spandex fabrics and also to work with elastics, so do not worry if you haven’t worked with those up til now.

Lesson Plan

First Day

On the first day, you will learn to measure for swimwear, and how to fit the pattern to your individual size and body proportions. You will also learn about the fabrics, linings and interior bust support available to the home sewer.  Once you have your fabrics chosen, you will cut out your swimsuit and the lining! Then you will start the sewing and learn how to handl tricky stretch fabrics.

Second Day

Now you will finish sewing the suit you started yesterday. Learn to sew elastics like a pro and why it is important to stretch-and-sew! You will also make the built-in bra to give you support like a bra! Insert the bra and the suit is complete!
