THIS CLASS HAS BEEN COMPLETED
Sew a fully-lined jacket the modern way, using fusible interfacing to shape and tailor the fabric instead of hand pad stitching. Armani constructs designer jackets this way, and so can you!
The pattern for the three day class is McCall’s 6172, The Perfect Jacket, from Palmer/Pletsch. It’s a close fitting, fully lined jacket featuring a notched collar, 2-piece sleeves, and welt or patch pockets. With three finished lengths — cropped, hip, and below hip — it’s a classic jacket. And because it’s a Palmer/Pletsch pattern, it’s been designed for success!
- Tissue-fit pattern, fabric prep, cutting pattern from fabrics and interfacing, fusing interfacing.
- Assemble outer shell of jacket including welt/patch pockets, buttonhole prep, sleeves
- Assemble lining, attach lining and outer shell, finishing work
With a week in between classes, there is plenty of time for slower sewers to catch up. We want a happy sewing class, not a harried one!
Recommended fabrics: wool crepe, wool gabardine, wool blends, wool tweed. (Wool is a great fabric for tailoring!)
An optional notions package, including Palmer/Pletsch interfacing, and sleeve head interfacing, will be available if desired.
