Tailoring Part I




6 weeks

Session Dates

Begins 8/26

Days/Times Offered (All PST)

M 3:30-5 pm, PST



Tailoring I is the first in a three-part series of classes designed to construct a tailored jacket, from creating a muslin version to ensure proper fit through building all of the interior structure to placing the collar on (final step in class - buttons and buttonholes are up to you). Join me in this fantastic journey that will not only result in a beautiful, well-fitting tailored jacket, but will improve your sewing skills overall.
