This is the first step to successfully construct any garment, alter the pattern. You will alter the pattern and cut out and sew a muslin. That muslin may be a muslin fabric or a suitable weight of less expensive fabric. Jackets will be fitted and patterns altered again if needed.You will need to email Ryliss at Ryliss@comcast.net to set up your Fitting session.
Be prepared it will take up to 6 hours and must be done prior to September 7.
Fabrics and Supplies will be discussed. Woven fabrics, stretch woven fabrics and knits may be used.
The next step in the series will start the process of constructing a tailored jacket with contemporary sewing techniques. Traditional techniques are taught in another workshop.
Use a traditional blazer pattern or French Classic Jacket Pattern. If it is an unlined pattern, you will make a lining pattern.
If you already have a pattern that fits well, you may skip this class and proceed to Class 2.
Unlined blazer available in cup sizes up to DD.
This pattern may be lined.
