Description

Are you interested in sewing menswear but are unsure of how to get started? Or have you sewn several menswear pieces but have been unsatisfied with the appearance and quality of your results? This webinar will introduce you to the concepts behind sewing menswear and will help you elevate your menswear sewing projects from ‘home-made’ to ‘high-end’.

You will learn how to select a pattern that will result in modern, stylish, and well-fitting results. You will learn the tricks necessary to create professional details such as perfectly topstitched cuffs, square waistbands and a flawless pant fly. The webinar will show you how to select the tailoring methods that best suit your needs and will walk you through the addition of high end details to every menswear garment such as flat fell seams, French seams and seam binding.

Once your skills in menswear sewing are enhanced, this webinar will provide you with a comprehensive set of resources so that you can find patterns, books and blogs and also join the online menswear sewing community!
