Tailored Jackets at The Make Den


Finally! We’ve had so many requests for a class on Tailoring. It really is an art and I’m so excited to be able to offer it this January! I remember the first time I sewed a jacket; It was a black wool winter coat for my boyfriend, with red chinese brocade lining. I learned so much while I was making it; welt pockets, easing in a sleeve – I still remember being so nervous while I was bagging the lining, wondering if it would look alright! Happily, he still wears it nearly 5 years later.

Tailored Jackets starts on Tuesday Jan 17th, Tuesday March 27th and Tuesday June 5th. All classes start at 6pm, and run for 3hrs. Class runs for 10 weeks. Students will learn how to properly fit a muslin, fuse fabric, sew in welt pockets, insert a collar, facing and sleeves, use a sleeve press, cut and bag a lining and then professionally press their garment. This class is recommended for students who have some previous sewing experience and are looking to take their skills to the next level.
Garments completed in this class will be appropriate for portfolio images if you are applying to FIT, Parsons, George Brown or Ryerson. The course fee is $350~. To register, email themakeden@hotmail.com
