Sewing with Jersey fabrics with Rebecca

Colette is a great pattern company and we have chosen the Myrtle dress for a beginning garment construction class.

Your own pattern or Colette's Myrtle Dress

Great dress pattern that can be sewn with both Jersey or Woven fabrics.

Can be casual or dressed up.

Class by Rebecca Shelly           Questions: info@rebeccashelly.com Located: Honey Run Quilters classroom

You can get 20% off for supplies for the class at HRQ.  There is a supply list at HRQ.

Use your Bust measurement to determine your garment size. The pattern will tell how much fabric to bring for your size. Version 1 or 2 is your pick. We will cut patterns in class.

Fabric Options:

Medium or lightweight jersey knit

Baby Rib Knit

French Terry

Double Knit

Woven fabric that drapes well

(Honey Run just got some great new jersey from Art Gallery Fabrics!)

-Fabric needs to be washed and dried! (This is very important for the proper fit of the garment. Fabric can shrink a lot and better to be safe than sorry.)

Day One:

-We will be going over the pattern and adjusting the sizing to fit your specific body measurements.

-Once pattern is prepared, I will share how to sew with knits. I will share how to sew with jersey and woven. -Begin sewing of project

Day Two:

-Finish dress

-Option of starting a second dress with different material if interested. (You will have 20% off for supplies for the class!)

After the class:

I will be creating a “Fitting 101” class that will take these patterns and go into how to fit them even more. Once you take this class, you can take the next level and fit the pattern even closer!

I have also created a Facebook Group for us to be able to share our projects together. Just search “Make clothes that fit.”

Looking forward to sharing my love of sewing garments with you!
