Dive into outerwear the easy way by sewing a cape. A lined cape might be the perfect lightweight jacket alternative for our variable Bay Area weather. Sewing a cape eases you into sewing with wool or other coating fabrics while sidestepping most of the tricky fit issues of a jacket.
In this class we will cover:
-where to use interfacings and which ones to choose
-how pressing is so much more than ironing, and how it will make your garment look great
-how to sew in a lining
-seam grading and trimming for a crisp finish
-hemming a lined garment
There are lots of great cape patterns out there now and vintage patterns are a good option, too! You can see our Pinterest board of cape patterns to get some ideas.
*This class comes with extra lab time and you can stay and work on your garment with the help of Hello Stitch Staff until we close at 8pm.
