Sewing for Kids Class---- Oliver + S: Hide-and-Seek Dress & Tunic
Sewing for kids is so fun and is a perfect entry into garment making. Students will expand their construction skills, without having to worry about fit too much.
This is an advanced beginner/ intermediate level class. Students (ages 16 & up) should feel comfortable winding the bobbin and threading the machine on their own.
Please measure your child prior to class. We will be choosing the size of the garment using this size chart.
