Cost: $165 (includes patterning tissue)
To register for the class, please email Leimomi with your name, a contact number and the name of the class you’d like to be in as the subject line.
EARLY REGISTRATION BONUS: Register for this class by October 2, and pay by October 8th, and your pattern will be provided free as part of the class.
Take your sewing skills up a level with a class aimed at high intermediate sewers who want to work on fit and finishes.
Working with New Look 6262 you’ll learn how to:
- do full or small bust adjustments on darted bodices to suit your individual curves,
- sew darts to avoid the dreaded ‘dart nipple’
- create nice, even gathers
- sew an invisible zip
- set in sleeves
- work with facings to get the perfect finish
- sew curved and V-shaped necklines so they sit flat, and are perfectly symmetrical.
We’ll also be hacking the pattern to add pockets!
You’ll go away from the class with a custom fitted bodice block that you can pair to a range of different skirt styles for a whole wardrobe of looks.
Students should expect to do 1-2 hours of sewing a week outside of class. Most students will finish their dress within the 5 weeks.
High Intermediate = Suitable for those with intermediate and higher sewing experience: students who are capable of following a pattern on their own, have taken at least three classes since Absolute Beginners, or have made 4 different garments independently outside of classes.
Cost: $165 (includes patterning tissue).
Materials: Students will need to provide the pattern (unless doing early registration) , the fabric and thread for their dress and any notions called for in the pattern. Recommendations will be provided when you register.
