Working with either pattern you’ll learn how to:

  • adjust for fit – top and bottom
  • work with swimsuit lycra
  • create supportive foam underwire cups
  • line your swimsuit for support and comfort
  • sew swimsuit elastic that holds in place, and moves with you

Students should expect to spend 2-3 hours outside of class sewing each week.

Cost: $170

Materials: Students will need to provide the pattern of their choice, and all fabrics and notions for their swimsuit.

Teacher:  This class is taught by our awesome sewing expert Leimomi Oakes.

Level: Suitable for those with very high intermediate and higher sewing experience.  Students should have extensive experience sewing knits, and experience fitting and adjusting patterns.
