Ready, Set, Sew! Level D Intermediate II Week 1 of 6

Ready ~ Set ~ Sew!

A Sewing Instruction Series

This series of sewing instruction classes will provide the necessary skills you need to learn to sew.  You can progress from learning the basics in Level A to a more advanced skill set in Level H.  You can join any class level with out any prerequisites.  Each class has a wearable, “level appropriate” project for you to sew and will include samples of sewing skills to keep as reference.

This series of classes will also build fitting skills and teach commercial pattern adjustments that complement each other as you progress through the different levels.  Let’s face it, the perfect fit makes the difference between a professional and a “homemade” look.

Sewing machines are available for use or you are welcome to bring your own machine.  Patterns are provided and included in the cost of the class.  We will provide a materials list when you register so you will have time to purchase your yardage (with the exception of Level A).

LEVEL D    Intermediate II         6 Weeks            Cost $320

This class will introduce a Princess Seam bodice.  This style line is common in evening wear and jackets.  Fitting techniques are more advanced and so for this project you construct a practice piece, or “toile”, from muslin so you can get a better fit.  We will also be sewing lining for this project.  The skills emphasis is:

·         Curved and eased seam

·         Facing with an attached lining

·         Pleats

·         Commercial pattern alterations

·         Set in sleeve

·         Different zipper installations, Invisible, Lapped and Centered.  These will be samples
