Designer Techniques for Couture Results

Invisible stitched patched pocket is the “Rolls Royce” when it comes to pockets. In this workshop we will do an invisible stitch patch pocket with the lining that is completely stitched down by machine for strength with no visible stitching on the outside. Learn how to do seven cool seam finishes, which includes Hong Kong, Bound, Flat Fell, Faux Flat Fell, French and Striped, along with a great way to finish off underlined pants with a Double French Seam and more. Learn also how to make 142” of continuous bias tape at 1 3/4” wide out of 16 1/2” square of fabric for some of these great seams. Make an unbelievable dart and pleat using one thread on your sewing machine, using only your bobbin thread in your sewing machine; great for shear fabrics or a designer detail. Master a rounded curved patch pocket with flap...do you have problems with getting your curved patch pockets to look symmetrical? A trial for most home sewers if you follow pattern instructions....not any more after this workshop. (6hrs. hands on workshop) Coffee, Tea, and Water provided.
