This 7 day class, taught by Mary Funt and Helen Haughey, will take you through the steps to create your own designer French jacket. After perfecting the fit of your mockup, we will explore how to lay out, cut and shape the fabric to achieve a perfect match along the princess seams. We'll demonstrate how to convert a two-piece sleeve into the classic three-piece style as well as draft a stand collar. Included will be a class on creating custom trim to perfectly coordinate with your fabric.
You’ll have two experienced instructors to guide you through the construction process. We will also examine couture finishing techniques such as hand-worked buttonholes and creating a custom trim to perfectly coordinate with your fabric.
The class will be held at the DoubleTree Hotel, PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens, FL. A block of rooms at a discounted rate has been reserved.
