About Blazer Boot Camp
Blazers are back! We'll teach you how to sew a fitted blazer in this 6 week intermediate level class.
Students will focus on learning intermediate level sewing skills to create a fully lined, wearable blazer with welted pockets. We'll be taking you through creating a muslin for the jack so that this jacket fits your body well. We've designed a 15 hour sewing class that will take your skills to the next level. This is a sewing course is designed for the sewing student who's had some basic experience. This class can be taken in our Sewing Studio in Hoboken (6 spots available) or you can take it from home and attend live instruction classes via video.
As with all our sewing classes, all students work at their own pace and focus on learning new skills based on the skills they come to class with. The number of projects you complete in the class will depend on how much experience you come to class with & how much work you do in between instruction times.
