Sewing School With Gail Doane August

August 15-17, 2019

Join us for a sewing school with Gail Doane. This promises to be three days filled with fellowship and fabulous projects!

Corduroy Jumper, Pants, and Liberty Ruffle Trim Blouse - 3 Days

Gail is debuting this new class at Children's Corner in April. Due to the popularity of this class, she will come back in August to teach this 3-day class.

The focus of this three day class will be precision machine sewing accented with lots of fine finishing details. The classic styled A-line corduroy jumper features a quilted center panel complimented with three fussy cut size 18 covered buttons. Liberty mini piping frames the center panel, neckline, and waistline of the jumper.  Four very deep inverted pleats, two in the front and two in the back, add just the right amount of fullness to the skirt. The jumper buttons all the way down the back and is closed with size 24 corduroy covered buttons. The hand stitched hem is bound in a mock Hong Kong finish using bias cut Liberty of London. The Liberty of London blouse pairs beautifully with either the jumper or the pants. The button down the front blouse features a corduroy piped Peter Pan collar worked in a block method. Learn how to use a 3mm rolled hem foot to stitch TINY 1/8” hemmed edges onto strips of Liberty which will then be gathered up for the double ruffle around the sleeves and the hem of the blouse. The pull-on pants feature Liberty inset side pockets, Liberty bias cut trim on the lower pant legs, and a bias cut Liberty tie at the waist.  Class kits will include pattern sheets for sizes 4, 6, 8, and 10.
