Sewing is probably a skill you learned in Middle School and it is time for a refresher to show off the wonderful fabrics you create. This class in general will last for one day a week for 8 weeks. By the end of this class you will be able to produce a professional looking garment that you have sewn. The structure of the class will usually include demonstrations, your practice at completing a page for a notebook on that topic, and sewing this technique on a piece of your own. There are youtube videos of most techniques to help remind you of steps. Sewing Techniques Explored: - understanding body shapes and what looks best - garment shaping - developing a muslin for fitting and make modifications - layout and cutting - edge finishing - appropriate seams - interfacing and facings - ironing and pressing techniques and tools - sleeves - closures - collars - hems At this point you will have learned most techniques needed to sew successful and beautiful garments and accessories.
