6-week Follow on Sewing Course with Jennie Lööf
Thu, 13 Apr 2017, 18:30 – Thu, 18 May 2017, 21:30 BST
Perfect Follow on to the Absolute Beginner course. This course is designed so you can come back again and again and just choose another level on your project.
Thursday evenings evenings 6:30pm-9:30pm
£200 + materials for your project
This follow on course is perfect if you have recently done the One-Day masterclass or the 6-week absolute beginners course, or if you already know most of the basics of sewing. This course is for all intermediate to advanced levels so you can come back again and again working on new projects of your choice, learning new techniques while working on more advanced patterns.
In this course I will show you how to take your sewing skills up one level by making garments with some more details than in the beginners course. Now when you know the basics in sewing we can concentrate a bit more on the construction of th garment. I have chosen a few patterns for you to choose from that will suit this course level if it is the first time you do it, but you are obviously welcome to choose whatever pattern you like. Or maybe you havae a garment in your wardrobe you want to copy? (This will not ruin your original garment)
The classes are very small, never more than 4 students, which allows me lots of one-to-one time with everyone.
Recommended patterns for the follow on course:
(But of course you can choose any pattern out there, just contact me to see if it is suitable for the course.)
In 6 weeks I will show you things like:
*How to choose the right fabric for the project and to prepare it.
*How to work with a independent sewing pattern
*How to copy an already excisting garment
*About french darts and princess seams
*How to sew in a exposed, invisible or fly zip
*How to use the Overlock Machine
*About dipped and scallops hems
*How to sew collars
*How to set a sleeve
*How to work with drape fabric
*And so many, many more things. If there is anything specific you want to know about you can just ask and I will show it in the course.
I have all tools you will need for the course and sewing machines that you can borrow for the course but you are more than welcome to bring your own so you can learn all the new things on your own machine. You only have to bring the fabric and pattern for your project. If you are unsure how to choose the right fabric for your project you can send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will help out.

Hope to see you in class soon.
