i’ve been thinking about this class ever since clothing designer jenny gordy wrote that she was moving to nyc. i ordered a shirt from jenny’s clothing line wiksten a couple years ago, and its one of my favorites. she’s an impeccable designer and sewer, and seeing her work has been a big inspiration for me to want to learn to sew clothes.

* * *

intermediate level

this class will focus on two versatile patterns; a skirt and a top/dress, from designer jenny gordy of wiksten. jenny first learned to sew from her grandmother, and then at FIT. she works primarilty in natural linen and cotton, and has an eye for delicate gingham, stripes, plaids, and droll floral prints that she then crafts into clean and classic silhouettes. each student will receive patterns in their size (to keep), and classes will focus on completing 2-3 garments. the photos above show the styles that we will be working with (created by jenny just for this class). basic sewing knowledge required. machines will be available for students to use, or you can bring your own machine.

four 1-1/2 hour classes
thursday evenings 11/5, 11/12, 11/19, 12/3
6:00- 7:30pm

  1. Oh that I lived in NYC, or that Jenny would run a correspondence class – I live in London 🙁

  2. Same! I live in West London and am desperate to have a Jenny Gordon-esque class run in my area. Boo! Good luck with the lessons though, I am certain they will be a huge success. x

  3. Hi Lena,

    Would Jenny be willing/interested in selling these patterns to the folks who are inspired but live far away?

  4. What a lovely opportunity! I wish that I could join in… thinking of branching off to berlin anytime soon 😉

  5. Since you're line of work involves dealing with hundreds of photos, on a daily basis, I wander if you would need a solution to eliminate the repetitive and mundane tasks (like watermarking, resizing, converting, and so on)? I humbly suggest our own solution, BatchPhoto ( http://www.batchphoto.com ). If interested please contact us from our site.
