Work through each seaming technique with Katrina as you build a reference notebook of techniques you can apply to any garment. Katrina will show you the creative possibilities of vintage seaming techniques and design details with stunning inspiration samples. Learn a variety of tailored effects including topstitching, padded and welt seams, piping and double piping, strap seams, lace insertions and more. Design bold garment elements using faux tucks, prairie points and Seminole piecework. Katrina puts it all together in three renditions of a dress pattern to show you how decorative seams can transform simple garments.

Important Pattern Information: The sewing pattern on which this class is based — Vogue 1329 — is not included with your purchase and may be out of print — check with online retailers. This class is rich in essential sewing techniques, so if the pattern is out of print, we encourage you to look for an alternative pattern with similar style details. You might also be able to find the original pattern through a private reseller.
