Introduction to tailoring techniques using the Step Ahead Soft Wear Jacket.
Note this class will be limited in size so sign up soon.  We will not hold the class if there aren't at least 2 students.
Collar, sleeves, and the body all have places where interfacings and techniques can be applied to take this unlined garment more structured & lined jacket out of wool.  We will only briefly mention Padstitching - I will demonstrate it.  But as Padstitching requires many hours to complete we won't use it for this course.  Look further in the year for an Advanced Tailoring techniques course that will cover Welt pockets and Padstitching.
