Little Designer's Sewing - Upper East Side - Spring 2020

Pin It Fancy

A wonderful introduction to sewing for ages 6 & 7 who want to explore the world of fashion. Your child will learn how to sew while making real clothing and accessories. Plus course ends with a fashion show!

Our Little Designer's class for children 6 & 7 years old combines all the elements of fashion such as measuring, cutting fabric, using patterns and sewing machines into one fabulous course culminating in a professional fashion show!

Class begins with an introduction on how to use a sewing machine (our machines are equipped with speed control and finger guards for a safe and fun environment) and students begin their first project during class number one. Throughout the course they learn how to thread the sewing machine, properly cut fabric and use child-friendly patterns to make 4 or more easy and fashionable items during their class.

Each child works with our professional instructors, on their own project at their own pace. Our student/teacher ratio is 6:1 and our studio has one sewing machine per student.

Projects progress in difficulty to build your child's sewing skills and projects change each season so that students can continue to sew with us. We focus on trendy pieces that can be worn in our fashion show by the 'lil designers themselves such as handbags, tops, skirts, pants and dresses.

This Spring we'll be making a sparkly belt bag, a trendy (and comfy) baseball tee, an airy tulle fringe skirt and a maxi dress. Boys who enroll will have alternate options.

At the end of the course, students receive two tickets to our Fashion Show where, like a dance-recital for fashion, student walk the runway in their amazing creations. With our raised, light-up runway you'll feel like you're at New York Fashion Week - complete with music, lights and photography - a fab way to see your child grow into a new, lifelong skill.
