Class Overview

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.
