CONTENT OF THE COURSE
In this course, you will learn to make a basic block for a blazer that is tailored to your unique size, for both male and female figures. After creating a basic pattern block, you can let your imagination run wild and design the exact blazer that you want to make. You will make a sample to get the fit perfect, while you learn all the techniques and finishes you will need in the final blazer (if you are lucky, this is a wearable sample!). This course includes some exercises from the Sewing Techniques Advanced, that we will ask you to do as homework in between classes. You bring fabric and sew your exclusive design, using some cool sewing techniques such as a welt pocket, breast pocket, back vent with lining, collar and lapel and a sleeve slit in two pieces with lining.
