Intermediate Sewing Part I & II


Intermediate Sewing I is a tailored shirt-making class.   Week 1 covers the basics of drafting bodice blocks and convertible collars, collars with a stand and mandarin collars.  In week 2 students develop their blocks to fit themselves and in week 3 we begin to assemble the body, collar and sleeves of the shirt.   Sewing in sleeves in the round and flat felled sleeves will be demonstrated.  Week 4 and 5 will be spent reviewing cuffs and plackets for both the front of the shirt and the sleeves, and week 6 is spent making button holes and sewing a narrow hem. This is an awesome class if you have mastered the basics and want to learn more traditional tailoring techniques.

Intermediate Sewing II is a shorts or pant-making class. Learn how to sew in a zipper with a fly front, western, slash and patch pockets, waistband and belt loops. Most importantly, make yourself a pair of pants or shorts that fit you perfectly!
Both classes do require basics sewing skills but do not need to be taken together.

The fee for 6 weeks is $250~, which includes HST and covers all patterns, notions and the use of our machines. Classes run for 3 hours. Intermediate Sewing II is starting on Saturday November 5th at 1pm and again on Saturday February 18th, 2012 at 1pm . Intermediate Sewing I is starting on Saturday January 7th at 1pm, and again on Saturday April 7th, 2012 at 1pm.
