Couture Hand Stitches View full class catalog
|Scheduled Class. Includes Chats. Never Expires!|
The foundation of any couture garment is control - of design; of fabrication; of engineering and construction; of fit and proportion. And one of the ways to achieve that strong foundation is with a secure grounding in the hand stitches that lie at the heart of any couture garment. From simple basting, to joining fashion fabric and underlining layers, to the perfectly spaced prick stitches of a hand-picked zipper, the full range of hand stitches at the couture dressmaker's disposal permits the essential control that produces a successful garment. Included in this course will be:
- The Basting Stitch
- Hand Overcasting
- The Catch Stitch
- The Slip Stitch
- The Fell Stitch
- The Invisible Hem Stitch
- The Back Stitch
- The Prick Stitch
- The Thread Chain
- The Thread Bar
- The Blanket Stitch
- The Buttonhole Stitch
We'll learn how to create these stitches, and just as importantly, where to apply them. We'll learn which thread to use, when to use single or double thread, when and how to use beeswax, and so on. And I promise that you'll quickly see the difference in the quality of the garments you sew.
Skills Required: Passion for learning! Absolute beginners will benefit from this class. No prior experience is needed.
