This sewing course will really ramp up your sewing skills and perfect your stitching techniques.
Over the six weeks you'll be guided by an expert tutor who will help you learn the skills to achieve that professional finish and perfect fit. Some of those skills and processes include:
Contouring the seams and darts to fit your shape.
Setting in the perfect sleeve
Getting the under collar to sit just right
How to sew facings and linings
How to sew a welt or jetted pocket
How to mark and sew the best buttonholes
So bring along your jacket pattern, 2.5m-3m of fabric, lining and some fastenings (buttons or a zip) and we will provide you with the appropriate interlinings and matching thread. You can also choose your jacket fabric and haberdashery from our lovely Sewing Emporium.
All your equipment will be provided but please feel free to bring along your personal tools if you prefer. We will also provide plenty of tea, coffee and homemade cake to keep you going.
If you are not sure what jacket you want to create, pop in to the Sewing Emporium for a chat with Jules and she can point you in the right direction of a suitable pattern.
