Basic Shirt Tailoring

SEW 2900

(Formerly Sewing 2) Sewing is a life skill that can lead to many other endeavours either for personal enjoyment or for business opportunities. Continue to develop and perfect your sewing skills as you create a new garment with professionally finished collar, sleeves with cuffs, front closures, buttonholes and new hem finishes. Explore more pattern alteration methods to get that custom fit. Construct a tailor's ham for your own use. You will learn and apply new sewing and construction techniques. When you have completed the course, you will have a marketable skill set suitable for work in this field. You will need a sewing machine of your own, in good repair, in order to complete the required home assignments. The college will provide a machine during class if necessary. Please bring a notebook to the first class. Other supplies required for the course will be discussed then. There will be additional costs depending on your choices for the various supplies.
