This class is a one-day workshop where we will be making wetskin from Chloroban, a SPF 50 fabric. It makes for great swimsuits and coverups such as rashguards. It's also great for cycling shirts.

Full day with a break for lunch. Bring a lunch!


This is an intermediate level course. Students need to know how to use their machines, and can assemble a garment without sewing lessons. You will need both a sewing machine and a serger for this workshop.


We will be using one of three Kwik Sew patterns for children. 


Course content covered:

  • Zipper insertion in stretch
  • Swimsuit construction
  • Elastic insertion


Fabric, thread, and elastic are available to purchase on site or you can bring your own stretch fabric to work with.


To determine how much fabric you need see the images of the back of the sewing patterns you will use.


Time 6 hours
