The Sagebrush Top is an elegant and easy-to-sew blouse that is a joy to make and wear. The Sagebrush is designed for woven fabrics and looks great in breezy fabrics like cotton voile, as well as more structured fabrics like a crisp linen. The simple design of the top lends itself well to customization. Loose without being baggy, the type of breezy fit you?ll want to wear all summer. Generous puff sleeves and gathers across the front make it comfortable to move in. The tie at the back neckline makes it simple and cute! The Sagebrush looks great tucked into something high waisted. Not a fan of ruffles? Leave it off and save yourself some time, the Sagebrush is cute with and without the front ruffle. The top can be made in a wide range of light to medium weight wovens. The more body your fabric has, the more puff to your sleeves.
In this class you will learn how to work with water resistant fabrics like oilcloth, waxed canvas and laminated cotton. Along the way you will learn how to do French seams and boxed corners to give your bag a clean interior and added structure.
A collaborative effort between Grainline Studio and Fringe Supply Co., Stowe is the ideal project bag ? whatever your project may be! The main compartment is perfect for works-in-progress while the many side pockets organize small tools, patterns & notebooks. It may have been designed with knitting in mind, but you?ll find it equally useful for a variety of purposes. The large size makes an excellent reusable shopping bag and the included inside pockets to corral a wallet and other small items mean it can be the only bag you take to the store. Along the way you will also learn about bias binding and how to apply it
The Pietra Pants & Shorts are the best of both worlds; a flat front, high-waisted silhouette with the comfort of an elastic waist in the back. Featuring lengthening panels in the front with slanted hip pockets and a hidden waist stay, they are so comfortable you?ll never want to take them off. Choose between four leg styles: a wide leg in floor-skimming or cropped length, a slim and tapered leg, or gently flared shorts. Fit is always important, especially with pants, so we will start off the first day of class sewing a test version to try on and see if any adjustments are needed to the be made to the pattern to fit you better. Once we?re satisfied with the fit, we will start working on our final versions confident that when completed our pants (or shorts) will look amazing. Prerequisite: Sewing 201 or equivalent experience.
