Want to sew a pair of summer shorts, but don't know where to start? Join Lindsey as she guides you through the entire process of sewing a pair of shorts from fitting to cutting your fabric and, of course, sewing. Lindsey will take you through her Fast Fit system for determining the size you will sew. With her help you'll cut out your fabric, too. Then move to the sewing studio and let the construction begin. Lindsey will take you through the steps of sewing the pattern and you'll leave class ready to strut your stuff in your new summer shorts! Bring your own pattern and fabric; see supply list for details.

Note: The class ticket states class time as 2:30 PM - 8:00 PM. There is a break from 5:00 - 6:00 for a little shopping and a snack.
