Tues. June 7 & 14 2022 |  7-9pm eastern time  |  Ermine Top
Two Zoom Class Sessions $40

  • Ermine Top  - Fibre Mood - Download Here
  • Need some help taping the pattern together? Click here.
  • Description: For Ermine, we started with the austere route with simple set-in sleeves, a round neckline, separate button placket, and bias tape for the neckline finish. But then it was impossible not to add a romantic flourish to this blouse! The triangular yoke features sweet gathers at the bottom. Stay understated and make Ermine in a simple solid or turn up the sound with a print explosion. The outfit options are myriad in combination with trousers or a skirt. The more cheerful, the better!
  • Project Skill Level: 2 of 5
  • Type of Fabric:  Ermine works well in all kinds of different fabrics, from drapey viscose (crepe), lyocell, silk to somewhat stiffer fabrics like poplin, chambray, lace, and fine or baby wale corduroy. This pattern is a treat in solids and colourful prints alike. Wovens will produce the nicest result though given the blouse's delicate details.
  • Fabric Amounts can be found here.
  • Other Supplies: 1/2 Yard Interfacing, Denim Zipper at least 7.5 inches.

Tues. July 19 & 26 2022 |  7-9pm eastern time  |  Felix Dress
Two Zoom Class Sessions $40

  • Felix Dress  - Grainline Studio - Download Here
  • Need help taping the pattern together?
  • Description: The Felix Dress is the ideal wardrobe piece to take you from the heat of summer to the cool days of autumn. The loose, breezy shape is perfect on its own or layered with tights and a cardigan. The skirt is eased, rather than gathered, to reduce bulk at the waistline. Three sleeve options provide you with plenty of versatility and a faux wrap bodice gives the look of a wrap dress without potential for mishaps. The Felix also features generous pockets and is fully lined. The unique construction of this dress has a few twists and tricks, so if you like learning new techniques it’s a must sew!
    Techniques involved include sewing a straight seam, easing, lining a dress, setting sleeves, applying armhole bias facings, and hemming.
  • Project Skill Level: 2 of 5
  • Type of Fabric:  Self: Lightweight fabrics such as cotton voile or batiste, handkerchief linens, rayon and rayon blends, and silks. Avoid fabrics that are stiff or tightly woven, as this dress requires fabrics with drape.
  • Lining: Lightweight linings such as rayon, rayon Bemberg, or silk. You can use the self fabric for the bodice lining, but we highly recommend using fabrics that won’t cling to the body and skirt for the skirt lining.
  • Fabric Amounts can be found here.

Mon. August 22 & 29 2022 |  7-9pm eastern time  |  Gibson Girl Blouse
Two Zoom Class Sessions $40

  • Gibson Girl Blouse  - Folkwear Patterns - Download Here
  • Need some help taping the pattern together?
  • Description: The Gibson Girl was the ideal of feminine beauty at the turn of the 20th century.  She often wore a soft, loosely fitted blouse of light cotton or silk with a high collar to accentuate her slender neck. A blouse worn with a skirt became the American woman's favorite fashion.  By 1905, the Sears Roebuck catalogue offered 150 versions of this blouse, from cotton to lace and taffeta.
  • The high-collar, back-buttoning yoke style is still just as flattering today. This blouse is lovely over a skirt or it can be cut longer to tuck in. Instructions for optional tucks and lace insertion included.
  • Project Skill Level: 2.5 of 5
  • Type of Fabric:  Soft lightweight fabrics such as batiste, lawn, linen, muslin, silk, gingham, quilters cotton or calico.
