THE PATTERN

The Metra Blazer is a simple blazer meant for stable knit fabrics. Included in the pattern are two collar options; choose either the simple shawl collar or go with the modern wide lapel collar. You’ll love the construction that gives it such a nice, clean finish. No garment is complete without pockets and this blazer is no exception. The in-seam welt style pockets are simple to construct but look high-end. Also included with the pattern is a full bust option. Ladies sizes XS -5X with optional Full Bust pieces for both views.

Each segment will be led by the owner and designer, Tami with moderator help from Tessa. The segments will be interactive and we encourage you to sew along with us in real time.

To get the most out of this workshop we encourage you to treat it like a regular, in-person class. However, the class will be recorded and that will be available to students for 30 days after the end of the workshop.

The workshop is composed of two sessions to appeal to different time zones. Each session will include 3 segments with a maxium capacity of 25 students.

During each segment there will be time allotted for questions and answers. The last segment we will go into more detail with fitting & pattern adjustments. All students are welcome to pop in to the Office Hours segment with any questions.

Our goal is for you to leave the final segment with a completed blazer you can be proud to wear and show off.

FAQ’s

Why a workshop and not a free sewalong?

The goal of our workshops will be to give students more individual help as well as giving students a really lovely virtual experience with multiple camera angles and great sound quality in our dedicated studio. Tami will also be sharing personalized fit and pattern adjustments to give you a garment you can be proud to wear and show off. 

You will receive the support, ecouragement and expertise you need to sew these more complex patterns.

 

What's included?

Three teaching segments each lasting 1 hour taught by Tami, the owner and designer of Love Notions Sewing Patterns. We will cover everything from fabric to sizing to construction to fit and pattern adjustments.

We will have an additional segment that will be called ‘office hours’ where you can drop in and ask specific questions that weren’t already answered.

All the digital pattern files are included as well as a special discount code from our sponsor- Stylemaker Fabrics.

 

How many students will there be?

We are limiting the workshop to 25 students per session. If there is a greater demand than that we may consider running another session at a different time.

How do I view and participate in the workshop?

This live workshop will be held on Zoom. Once you register you’ll receive an email with more details with the link and meeting code. You will be able to view & participate in the class with a computer, phone or tablet. The live class will be recorded and that will be viewable to students for 30 days after the end of the workshop.

We are hoping to be able to have the live workshop Closed Captioned but if all else fails, each recorded segments will have closed captioning.

 

What supplies do I need?

In our first segment we will go into more depth about fabric type for future makes but you should come to the first segment with at least a muslin cut out.

 

What should I do before the workshop?

Before our first segment you should have your fabric and pattern prepped and cut out. It would be a great idea to use the workshop period as muslin practice so you can save your good fabric once you’ve got the construction and fit down.

What sizes does this pattern include?

What is your refund policy?

Due to the nature of a digital class, no refunds are offered. If you’re not able to make all the segments of your workshop the recording will be available for 30 days after the end.
