Beginner Workshop - Dance Shorts
2 Session workshop – 3 hours per session (6 hours total)
Class capacity – Maximum 5 students
(Here at Free Movement, we promise a small student to teacher ratio to ensure each student gets the assistance and attention they need.)
All materials, sewing machines and fabric will be provided.
Now that you’ve got the hang of the basics of sewing and fabrics, here’s your chance to start on your own outfit!
This 2 session workshop will give participants an opportunity to learn how to draft a pattern and sew their own tailored-fit stretch dance shorts.
- Drawing a pattern from measurements
- Understanding fabric grain lines and how to identify them for maximum stretch
- Pinning and cutting stretch fabric
- Using the right seam for joining and finishing
- Hemming and clean-finishing seams
- Handling and applying elastic to waistbands
- One pair of stretch dance shorts!
(Participants are welcome to select their preferred fabric available in the studio.)
Classes are held on Saturdays. Please call us to confirm slot availability, and we will inform you when class is happening once there are sufficient attendees.

Supplementary workshops for adding decorations (rhinestones, appliques, tassels) will be only available to participants who have completed at least one article of clothing to work on.
*While the studio’s 3D body measurement scanner will be available for use, participants will still be taught how to use a measuring tape to take measurements.
