It took me years to figure out what was so special about jackets. My stumbling block was that I kept making jackets that didn't suit my life style, my clothing style, or my body's build. Once I figured out these things, jackets became an indispensable component in my wardrobe, and I love wearing them!

Regardless of where you are in your jacket-making journey, Sarah is there to assist you, whether it's to fit a muslin, assess what fashion fabric is appropriate for your jacket style, determine how to structure your jacket, discuss sewing techniques, or explain the complexities of a French-style jacket. While you can't do all of the above in 3 days, it is possible to make a huge amount of progress.

In this 3-day workshop, I'll help you develop a perfectly fitting jacket that's proportionate for your body. I'll also discuss stylistic elements such as collars and cuffs, fabrications, inner structure, linings, and finishing techniques. You may work on a classic jacket or a softly structured jacket. Or if you want to tackle a French-style jacket, I'll show you how to streamline some of the couture techniques that are traditionally used. Note that this class does not include men's tailoring techniques such as pad stitching and taping a lapel - rather, it concentrates on tailoring techniques that I have found to be more flattering on a woman's frame.

A supply list, instructions on marking and sewing a test fitting garment, and pattern suggestions will be sent about six weeks prior to the beginning of the class.
