Three Little Birds Sewing Co
Intermediate Garment Making --- Nova (Sapporo) Coat
Learn how to make this versatile, oversize coat in this intermediate class. With this dramatic cocoon silhouette and angled seaming, it is designed to be worn open with endless customization possibilities.
Choose lightweight fabric for a spring/summer version or cosy wool for cooler weather plus you can either make it cropped or with long sleeves.
Students should be comfortable setting up a sewing machine on their own and following a seam allowance. You will learn basic garment construction, how to line a jacket, topstitching, and more!
Students should come to class with their fabric already cut out and may need to sew outside of class in order to stay on schedule. If you have a question about sizing or cutting, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
