Three Little Birds Sewing Co
Advanced Begginer/ Intermediate Garment Making (VIRTUAL CLASS) --- Heather Blazer
The Heather is an unstructured, modern blazer. This comfortable and stylish jacket has a slightly oversized fit and can be worn in all seasons. It is the perfect editorial layering piece. This pattern is designed to be approachable for the beginner sewist. If you have always wanted to dip your toe into making outerwear but have felt intimidated, this is a great place to start!
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!
This class will take place LIVE via Zoom. If customers are amendable, class will be recorded and available for students 30 days after class. You will receive a link to the class 15-20 minutes prior to class.
Class meets Thursdays, March 11th-April 1st, 7-9pm.
Students may need to sew outside of class in order to stay on schedule.

- Heather Blazer Pattern by Friday Pattern Company*
- 2 1/4 - 3 yards of fabric for the exterior, depending on size making*
- 1-3 yards of fabric for the lining, depending on size making
- 1-1.5 yard of fusible woven interfacing, depending on size making
- 1-1.25 yard of knit interfacing
- Coordinating thread
- Swedish Tracing Paper (optional)
*MAIN FABRIC: Any woven fabric with a bit of weight to it is great: Linen, suiting, twill, denim, canvas. Avoid fabrics that can't take a press since there is a fair amount of fusible interfacing involved in this project.
LINING FABRIC: Typically you want to line your jackets with something that will easily slide on and off over other fabrics. Anything a little bit slippery would work. Rayon, silk, a cotton with a tight weave.
WOVEN INTERFACING: You want the type that looks like fabric (not the papery kind) and is fusible
*We recommend purchasing the PDF version via Friday Pattern Co. and having it printed on www.pdfplotting.com
