Sep 12: Let's Talk Lined Jacket Construction (1 of 4 sessions)
For the month of October, all the webinars will feature a sew-along series with Ramona. This session will be in preparation for those classes. For the sessions we will be using a lined blazer with a lapel(you may use a similar pattern that you already have). Discussion will be on how to choose the fabric, interfacing and notions for the lined jacket. Three sessions in October will be the constructions methods she developed from studying ready-to-wear techniques to complete the lined jacket.
Sep 19: Let's Talk Cuffs and Collars
Do the undersides of cuffs and collars on garments peek out? Do the curves seem less than smooth? Have you learned how to add piping? In this webinar learn some simple tricks to give you professional results.
Oct 3: ASG Online! Gift Giving Ideas
The clever folks at Clover have some fun tools on the market to make great gifts. We’ll take a look at three of them and projects that may be made.
Oct 10: Let’s Talk Lined Jacket Construction Session 2 of 4
This session will be layout and cutting of the jacket and lining. Techniques for matching plaids will be discussed. The interfacing will be applied and tips on pressing during the construction will be given.
Oct 17: Let’s Talk Lined Jacket Construction Session 3 of 4
Jacket construction will begin. All construction will take place on the sewing machine…absolutely no hand sewing with these RTW (ready to wear) techniques! This session will include setting the sleeves, sewing in the sleeve headers and shoulder pads (yes, by machine!), and discussion of buttonholes will begin.
Oct 31: Let’s Talk Lined Jacket Construction Session 4 of 4
If you have followed along and done the sewing between sessions, by the end of this session you will have a completed, lined jacket, in just a few more hours of sewing after viewing this session which includes lining construction, hemming, and sewing the buttonholes.
