Make your very own gorgeously tailored jacket! We've taken Beth Galvin's popular, 3 day Intro to Sewing workshop and moved it online so that you can join us from the comfort of your sewing table!  Beth has sewn countless jackets for herself and others and will teach you everything you need to know to sew your very own classic blazer. She'll demonstrate her favorite modern techniques and how she saves time with streamlined construction. 

In this workshop, you can work on the blazer pattern of your choice. Some of our favorite patterns include the Jasika Blazer by Closet Case, the Heather Blazer by Friday Pattern Company, and the Butterick B6862 Misses' Jacket. If you wish to sew a men's blazer, you might want to use Vogue V9262 or Burda Style 6871.

With this course, you'll get 18 hours of instruction and guidance. The workshop will cover:

  • Choosing the correct size pattern
  • Where to use interfacings and which ones to choose
  • How to sew a crisp collar and smooth pockets
  • Two different ways to sew a lining
  • Grading to give your jacket a polished look
  • How to set a perfect sleeve
  • How to make beautiful buttonholes & smooth hems,
  • Tips and tricks for fast sewing with a professional finish

Optional: If you would like help getting the perfect fit for your blazer, we also highly recommend our in-person Fit Lab with Beth.
