About the event
If you have ever considered making a classic tailored blazer which is fitted to you personally, or you are
interested in further advancing your sewing skills, this class is for you! During this 3-day workshop,we will begin by
creating a muslin garment to ensure proper fit of the blazer. Once fit is confirmed, we will then dive into
the tailoring techniques as we construct the blazer. This will include practicing techniques such as welt
pocket construction or shoulder shaping, or a demonstration of how to properly set a lapel roll line. Students
will also learn to use many tailoring tools (tailoring ham, clapper, point presser) which are relied on to
get that classic blazer look.
This classed is designed for advanced sewists who are knowledgeable in garment construction. Take your sewing skills to the next level with instructor, Donna Kowalick, as she demonstrates techniques for making your very own gorgeously tailored jacket.
