Welcome to the Let’s Sew a Quilted Jacket class! A quilted jacket is such a satisfying project, because you really get to work with your textiles and learn some impressive sewing skills. In the end, you’ll have a garment you’ll want to wear forever, because it will never go out of style.
Meet Easton! Easton features an oversized fit and dropped shoulders with a shawl collar and snap closures on the center front. It’s the perfect blank canvas for quilting, the best layer to add to your wardrobe, and it is so fun to sew—especially since we’ll walk you through each step.
In this class you’ll learn:
- The best fabrics to use for quilting
- How to quilt and bind a swatch to practice this technique
- All about quilting pins and basting stitches
- Tricks for getting perfect corners and curves with bias tape
- How to sew a really fun shawl collar
- How to add a lining
