Women's Bodysuit

Learn which needle, thread and stitch to use on a domestic sewing machine when sewing stretchy fabrics. We are using the Elysian Bodysuit pattern from Friday Pattern Co. It is a long sleeve bodysuit with style lines that make it perfect for mixing and matching colors and patterns.  Join us to adapt this great piece for your cosplay adventures!

The Elysian is designed for movement and rest. It is a soft layer you will want to reach for everyday. It has long sleeves, a scoop neckline, curved seaming under the chest, and two cuff options. The Style lines on the Elysian make it perfect for mixing and matching colors and patterns.

In this class you will learn the best way to transfer and cut garment patterns on slippery fabric with stretch. You will also learn the best needle and thread to use and you will get to test a variety of stitches to find the best one for the fabric you are using. There will be two cuff options for the long sleeves and you will sew a scoop neckline.

PLEASE NOTE: Students will have additional sewing tasks to complete outside of class. If you find yourself struggling with construction at home, you may take this class again. While students are cutting out their patterns in class, the instructor is available to assist with any questions you may have in completing your project.

FABRIC NOTE:  If bringing your own fabric, you will need approximately 2 yards of a four way stretch fabric. To determine if you have a four way stretch, hold the fabric unstretched and measure out 8 inches. Now stretch the fabric and if it reaches to 12 inches then it is a two way stretch. Repeat with the same steps in the opposite direction to determine if it has two way stretch. If it has two way stretch in both directions than it is a four way stretch.
