Here are the classes you can receive individual instruction on:
Corset Workshop $135: Sew your own corset; white coutil, all the supplies, and one full day of sewing included. (I recommend this before you attempt to sew a day dress or ball gown) Finish your corset $30 per day (A corset usually takes two days to construct)
Bodice Fitting $45 per day: Make a muslin from your favorite day dress or ballgown pattern and have it fitted to your corseted shape (I recommend Truly Victorian). If this gets completed we will go right into the cutting out process
Bodice Construction $45 per day: Period techniques taught for a day or ballgown bodice to go over a corseted figure including flat lining, hook and eye closure, boning, and piping facings. Supplies will be available for sale.
Skirting the Belle $45 per day: How to make a skirt (day or ballgown) to go over your hoops with period construction techniques, pleating ideas/cartridge pleating instruction.
The 5 Foot Pinner Apron $45: For beginning to intermediate sewers, learn how to use 5 of your sewing machine feet while constructing a pinner apron
Under it All $45 per day: Chemise for ballgown and drawers for beginning and intermediate sewers. (You have to know how to work your machine)
Wrapper $45 per day: This requires 7 yds each of fabric and lining. You can use the Past Pattern #807 or one of the Laughing Moon or kayFig wrappers.
UFO $20: Come and "Sew for the Day". Work on your own Project. Let me know if you would like to do this so I can have enough space.
Bring a Potluck dish to share, your sewing machine and the project you want to work on. We'll have fun and accomplish some sewing!
Please let me know if you plan to participate and which class you are interested in doing. I can send you a flyer with more information about each workshop. Supplies (patterns, boning, hook & eye tape, etc.) will be available for purchase. Limit is 10 students.
