|I took a 5 week class on stretch fabrics at Club Tissus in Laval with my husband. The instructor was Dorothee Barnes. We really loved this course. There were 3 patterns that we worked with. We worked with Jalie's 2566 shirt. I learned how to do a turtleneck, mock turtleneck, v neck curved v neck, rounded v neck, Chanel installation of the collar. We also learned all this on the man's pattern, Jalie 2918. We did Jalie's yoga pants, 3022. We also made a skirt from no pattern at all. We made the pattern by our measurements.
This class taught us how to work with knits, how the stretch of the knits is important in relation to pattern sizing, and so much more. We really learned the different techniques on installing a collar. We were really glad to take this course and we learned so much. I have made many shirts, dresses, pants and so has my husband. We will make him a set of long johns from the pattern next.
All in all, so worth taking this class, even if you have been sewing for a long time.
