No patterns, no waist or hip measurements, just style and fun. This loose fitting, drop shoulder jacket without darts is an easy and flattering jacket to wear. Once you have the base, you can add a flounce, pleats, tucks or front cuff band. This jacket can be made collarless or choose from a variety of collar styles, straight hem or shaped, yoke or no yoke. Once you learn the basics, you can go wild. You become the designer.

 

For class select a rayon batik or something else that drapes and tears on grain, stiff fabrics make us look heavier and remember, there is a huge difference between drape and cling. Depending on your design, construction will be rolled edge with the possibility of flat lock and 3 or 4 thread overlock. Bring your own fabric; see supply list for details.

  • Supply List:

    Fabric requirements:

    3 to 4 yards drapey WOVEN fabric that tears both lengthwise and crosswise such as rayon, silk or polyester. It may be all one fabric or 2 or 3 coordinating fabrics. I highly recommend "Sew Batik" rayons at sewbatik.com for beautiful quality, beautiful drape and beautiful design, that way we'll both know you got the "right" fabric. Sew Batik rayon is not, however, required. No jacquards, please, they don't tear.

     

    Pencil with eraser; Tape measure for sewing; Quilt binding clips; Straight pins; 3 cones thread to match/coordinate with fabric or use class threads available in black, white, ecru or gray.; Chalk or marking pencil/pen that will show on your fabric.

  • Completion Level: You will wear your jacket at end of class
