Classic Tailoring: The Blazer

with Steffani Lincecum
Classic Tailoring: The Blazer
Modern styling meets Old-World tailoring techniques as you sew an heirloom-quality blazer with high-end details that even the most seasoned sewers will swoon over.

Join professional costumer and patternmaker Steffani Lincecum and learn fine sewing techniques to create a superior-quality blazer with hand-stitched details. Padstitch hair canvas and muslin into your garment to reinforce stress points and add sophisticated structure. Assemble your jacket body beautifully with expert tips. Add wigan to hemlines and sleeve cuffs for a crisp look and keep shoulder seams from stretching with twill tape. Demystify turn-of-cloth while shaping your undercollar and construct vented sleeves, bound buttonholes and patch pockets as your jacket comes together. Sew your shoulder pads, lining, lapels and collar before adding edge-stitching that makes your finished garment even more special.

Steffani Lincecum brings amazing talent and instruction. I have been sewing for less than a year and can put together most commercial patterns.

It is not the easiest class you will take. But if you follow along and practice the methods, you will bring your sewing WAY UP !
