    Sewing Facings and Developing Facing Patterns
    [Student Feedback]   
    Instructor: Sarah Veblen
    Sarah Veblen
    If you've done any garment sewing, you've probably encountered facings before. While commercial patterns do include an overview of how to apply the facing to the garment, the information is usually pretty general. Although there's more to facings than you might think, the good news is that mastering them is easy. And the benefit of well-sewn facings is that your garments will look better than ever.

    Applying a facing is one of my favorite things to sew: after years of sewing and hundreds of them, I still get a kick out of putting a facing on. I think this is because each step is easy to do, and if done correctly, the facing will be perfect � every single time.

    Another intriguing aspect of studying facings is learning how to make simple design changes to your patterns. One of the functions of a facing is to finish off the raw edge of a garment -- a bodice neckline for example. If you have a simple blouse that fits well, changing the shape of the neckline can result in a garment that looks new and unique. Making this type of pattern change and drafting the accompanying facing pattern requires no prior patternmaking experience -- you'll be amazed at how easy it is!

    The 7 lessons in this class will cover

    • The functions of a facing.
    • The importance of supporting a facing.
    • How to select the best interfacing for a facing.
    • How to successfully apply a facing.
    • Pressing tips when constructing a facing.
    • How to develop (draft) a facing pattern.
    • Tips on developing new neckline shapes.
    • Using facings in order to shape other areas of garments.
    Skills required: Basic sewing techniques. A great class for beginners and even for intermediates who want to fine tune their skills. Also great for people getting back into sewing after not sewing for a while.

    Class is a combination of PDF downloads, boards and Interactive real time chat sessions with the instructors.

    Bust Adjustments   
    Instructor: Sarah Veblen
    Sarah Veblen
    SALE
    Did you know that most commercial patterns are developed for a bust with a B cup? If your bust size is larger or smaller than a B cup, adjusting the pattern to reflect your bust means that you can work on a pattern size that is appropriate for your upper chest and shoulders. Working in this way and making a full bust adjustment (FBA) or a small bust adjustment (SBA) puts you a big step closer to getting a pattern that fits!

    This video class has 9 high-def videos filled with conceptual information about bust adjustments as well as how to make the pattern adjustments. There are also 7 written PDF lessons that support the material covered in the videos, so you can read about bust adjustments, study the step-by-step photographs, and follow along quite easily. Bust adjustments for patterns with side bust darts, armscye princess lines, shoulder princess lines, and bodices with raglan sleeves are all explained in detail. Plus, several variations of the traditional FBA/SBA are included in both the videos and written lessons, as are basic patternmaking practices for truing dart legs, walking seams, and making parallel darts.

    This is a Video Class! You can watch them whenever you want and ask questions as you sew-along.
