New eCourse Beginners Quilted Jackets. Another new launch. This ecourse is aimed at beginners. It will teach you all you need to know about making quilted jackets either by hand or machine. It is illustrated throughout with colour photographs. Learn from home with tutor input if needed.
I started my first hand stitched sleeveless jacket in 2018. The final jacket for this ecourse was finished yesterday. I love to handstitch in the evenings, it is so relaxing and passes the time. There is nothing more pleasant than your own handmade clothes.
This new eCourse Beginners Quilted Jackets includes:
Making your own pattern
Getting the Right Fit
Tips and Techniques
The ecourse includes two sleeveless jackets, one hand stitched and one machine stitched. A hand stitched jacket and a machine stitched longline sleeveless jacket. A machine stitched indigo jacket. Suggestions for adjusting and altering are given too. So there is lots of scope for making your own clothes. All styles could be hand stitched or machine stitched.
I am already working on writing the next ecourse, which is another in the Making Clothes series. I am planning a series of coats. This series will also include recycling old coats or fabrics to make something new. I have planned at least four styles.
The first coat design is an EPP hexagon coat with the fabulous Moda Voysey fabric. This is growing quite quickly even though it is all hand stitched. I have had the fabric for some time now and it is a pleasure to be sewing it up into something so useful.
This is a more adventurous ecourse than the first, including more techniques and design work.
Find all the ecourses, including this new one on the website.
