Focus on Fit - The Kelly Anorak Class
Fit and sew the Kelly Anorak, by Closet Case Patterns. In this 5-week sewing course you will use the Palmer/Pletsch Tissue-Fitting Method to achieve a perfectly fitting anorak jacket. Helen has sewn it and cooked up construction improvements for sewing ease and better durability. You may choose to line your coat, as well.
We will start with a basic introduction to tissue-fitting followed by individual jacket fittings in tissue. You will then cut and fabric-fit your jacket before any sewing is done. Step-by-step demos by Helen will lead you through all construction techniques. You will learn three seam finishing options. Some homework may be assigned between weeks 3 & 4. Hardware application will be made simple with an industrial rivet press. Grommets and spring-snaps will be provided in your choice of antique brass or nickel.
The best thing about the Kelly Anorak is that you will WEAR it. All. The. Time.
