Clone It!



Who doesn’t have a beloved T-shirt, skirt or dress they’ve worn to shreds and wish they had 10 more of? Most of our favorite clothes are actually super simple and easily replicated. You’ll learn how to “rub off” a pattern from an existing garment (and contrary to popular belief, you WON’T have to take it apart). Then we’ll stitch up a quick muslin (fit sample) to test the pattern and tweak it if necessary. You’ll always have a fresh crop of handmade garments that feel like old friends! 

Note: The muslin will not be a finished garment, but can likely be finished after class and used as a “wearable muslin”. 

Please bring 2-3 options for your project: simple T-shirts/blouses/skirts/dresses (no pants!) with minimal or no gathers or pleats work best. Students must have basic machine sewing experience and have a few simple projects under their belt. 

This class will be held at the BALMVILLE GRANGE, at 27 Fostertown Road in Balmville, just across the river from Beacon! Major thanks to the Grange for making this big, open space available to us so that we can have plenty of room to social distance. Each student will have a full table to themselves, and there is a lovely field for us to picnic in as well as a covered outdoor space for lunch should there be rain. Masks will be required in the main classroom at all times. A limited amount of tools and machines will be available for single-person use; please let us know if you anticipate needing to borrow anything.
