The last in our May intermediate sewing sessions, how to make simple, neat and accurate waistbands or casings for elastic. Learn a simple and neat way or fitting a waistband onto a skirt or trousers……and you’ll learn to ‘stitch in the ditch!’ You will learn to measure your waist, add garment and wearing ease, make a practice wasitband and fit it to a piece of fabric. You’ll also learn how to make a casing for elastic and how to use a bodkin to thread the elastic through. “Easy peasy lemon squeezy”…and handy too….just think of all those skirts you can make…..talking of which if you’re interested in making an ‘oh so easy’ 50’s gathered skirt, just book on the pleats darts and gathers course as well as this one and you’ll learn all you need to know. Fantastic!
As always class sizes are small, there’s lots of individual attention and free refreshments.
