This is a series of classes to build your garment sewing skills. Each class can be taken alone, but each class builds on the previous one, so you will benefit the most if you take all three in order. The final one finishes off the pant with a bias facing treatment. You will be constructing a take-home sample with each of the following techniques on a mini-sized pant. Class demos with written or verbal instructions for each feature; then students work on those samples in class. Couture touches for a well-made garment are covered including proper pressing techniques, the use of interfacing, stays, staystitching, etc.
Session 1: Drafting and construction details for a back yoke and/or facing; small key pocket in the yoke; and invisible zipper.
Session 2: Welt slant hip pocket
Session 3: Bias facing with optional elastic comfort stay & belt loops. This treatment is great if you don’t have a defined waist but want a smooth finish at the waistline of your garment. The buttonhole elastic insert gives comfort without bulk. It will be added to the pant pocket sampler from sections 1 & 2. Details on closures.
