Couture Sewing Class / Dressform Class

DoubleTree Hotel, Palm Beach Gardens, FL

January 16-21, 2023

9AM - 5:30PM

Choose your own project for this 6 day class. Maybe you’re hesitant to work with specialty fabrics. Do silks make you nervous? Need expert advice on how to handle a particular fabric or design? Have a stalled project and would like some help completing it? This class is the perfect opportunity to finish a French jacket. Want help with fitting and pattern adjustments? Join this class for 6 days of couture sewing to take your skills to the next level.

I’m also offering an opportunity to create your own custom dressform in this class. You will create a cover for your dressform that duplicates your figure. I will guide you through the process of padding your form and installing the cover. You will also draft a personal sloper which can be used to create custom styles or as an aid in altering commercial patterns. Both right and left detachable custom arms complete the form. You will need to bring or ship a professional style dressform. Other supplies: professional quality muslin, padding, linen thread, etc., will be supplied in class. I can help with logistics of obtaining a dressform and arranging to have the completed form shipped back to your home. Please contact me for additional details: mf953@aol.com

The class is held at the DoubleTree Hotel, Palm Beach Gardens, FL. We have a large workroom with plenty of natural light, cutting tables and professional pressing equipment. You must supply your own personal tools. You can either bring your machine or reserve one of mine. I have several machines available for loan during class. Please let me know if you wish to reserve a machine.
