Class Overview

Alongside fashionista Linda Lee, you'll learn essential skills for making and sewing fine garment interiors: choose interfacings, underlinings, interlinings, facings and linings, and install them perfectly in your garments. Bring stunning structure and a lifetime of longevity to your fabric with interfacings. Underline entire garments to reduce wrinkles and give beautiful body to limp fabrics. Interline your outerwear to protect your fabric and add warmth and comfort to the garment. Flawlessly finish raw edges on exposed areas of your garments with facings. Plus, you'll learn how to sew linings for both pants and skirts, and Linda will even share how to draft and sew your own tailored jacket lining.
