The focus of this three day class will be precise machine construction and fine finishing details. Students will make a coordinating dress and jacket. The construction method for finishing the jacket eliminates almost all hand work! The coordinating dress features piped, bias cut tartan overlays on the bodice front and sleeves.
Have you ever wondered if you could smock an entire dress without any of the stitches showing? The smocking design featured on this 100% cotton, sheen sateen dress has a seed bead slipped on with every stitch. There will be five kit color options (red, baby pink, baby blue, turquoise, and royal), all paired with white beads, white collar and sashes, and white laces. Basic geometric smocking ability is a pre-requisite for this class.
Who doesn't like a closet full of comfortable, wearable wardrobe choices? Join us for another fun foray into sewing for that special girl in your life. This time we are focusing on a collection of separates - a choice of versatile tops; some pants – shorts, capris, or ankle-length; and a quick sassy skirt- plus a charming nightgown. As with other “pattern testing” classes, the cost is minimal and includes lunch and printed materials.
