WRKS-9143Waistline Finishes

The waistline edges of skirts and pants may be finished in many ways and we could even turn some ideas upside down and use these ideas to finish the edges of casual jackets and sleeves.  All students will create a set of full scale samples in this class to learn the best waistline finishes for your projects.  Methods for knit fabrics and woven fabric will be included.  You will sew straight and curved waistbands finishes, elastic application and facings.  Unique uses of ribbons and linings to beautifully finish edges will also be completed because these are all also great solutions for comfortable and attractive finishes for your clothing designs.

Students please bring to class:
Sewing machine with fool control, regular presser foot, zipper foot and sewing machine needles.  Basic sewing supplies: scissors, pins, pincushion, hand sewing needle, thread (light and dark colors) tape measure, ruler, pencil and or marking pencil and chalk.  A simple inexpensive iron if you have one.

The kit fee is included.
