ATLANTA -Breezy tailoring: The lined raglan sleeve coat w/Kenneth D. King



Raglan sleeve coats are flattering, stylish and relatively easy to construct.

Kenneth designed the pattern for this lined raglan sleeve coat, which he has perfected in teaching his classes at FIT in New York.  This coat class is for those who wish to construct a coat, but don't want to make something that is too heavy or complicated.  The coat can be made from lighter-weight fabrics for spring or fall, or can be made from heavier wool for the dead of winter.

Along with the raglan sleeve, Kenneth will show how to install the perfect single-welt pockets, sew a flattering roll collar, install the raglan sleeves, and make the cuff band to finish the look. The pattern he has designed is available in all sizes is included with the class.

Lunch and beverages are included in the price of the workshop.

No refunds after January 14, 2019.
