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.

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 6341 you’ll learn how to:

  • do full or small bust adjustments on princess seamed bodices to suit your individual curves
  • sew princess seams that sit smoothly over your bust
  • make minor pattern alterations, such as raising the waist, or lowering the neckline
  • sew pockets that sit neatly and invisibly in the side seams
  • sew an invisible zip
  • set in sleeves (depending on the view you choose)
  • work with facings to get the perfect finish
  • sew curved necklines so they sit flat, and are perfectly symmetrical.

 

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, the fabric and thread for their dress and any notions called for in the pattern.  Recommendations will be provided when you register.

Teacher:  This class is taught by our awesome sewing expert Johanna Morris.

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.
