Below is just a partial sampling of topics we might cover in your individual sessions. We'll start by evaluating your skills and the type of sewing you want to do, and develop a personalized plan to build your confidence as you strengthen your skills.
First Things First
Taking accurate measurements
Pattern selection -- because pattern sizes are not the same as ready-to-wear sizes
Adjusting your pattern for a better fit
Making a muslin test garment
Choosing and shopping for fashion fabrics and trims
Interfacing, underlining, lining, seam finishes -- what's on the inside is important too
In-person fittings at any stage of your garment construction, from muslin to marking the final hem -- much easier than doing fittings on yourself!
Working with special occasion fabrics, laces and trims
Boning and other inner support systems for strapless dresses
Restyling heirloom garments
Creating garments from vintage textiles
