LEARN TO SEW LIKE A PRO AT FIT

So you’ve spent the last four hours watching old Project Runway episodes. Now you’re thinking, Hey, I’m creative. I live by Parsons. I could do that. Only you don’t know how to sew, and design theory (Parsons’s strength) isn’t your bag. Sandra Markus, assistant professor of fashion design at FIT, created these two seminars for clothes fanatics who want to make their own duds but aren’t looking to get a degree. Learn to Sew Like a Pro I ($185 for five three-and-a-half-hour sessions) teaches students how to make a pair of drawstring pajama pants; the second seminar ($220 for six sessions) advances to custom-designing a cotton pencil skirt. “I see a lot of the students after the class is over,” says Markus. “They’re cutting out Marc Jacobs pockets from magazines, thinking of ribbon trims they can put on.”
