 Several methods and treatments for smooth, flat seams, beautifully hung hems, perfectly inserted zippers, wonderfully flat darts, neckline finishes, invisible or outstanding pockets, and much more will be demonstrated. Claire Shaeffer’s book Couture Sewing Techniques will be used as a text.

Students may work on their own garments, patterns, or muslins, and are welcome to make samples of various techniques.  

Information on color, contrast, scale, fabric knowledge and selection, pressing techniques, and sewing ergonomics, will be discussed throughout the week.

 Introductory cost is $500 per student, $100 non-refundable deposit will hold a spot. Limited space available to keep a low teacher to student ratio.
