Garments

Petite Plus Jeans

 

I decided to teach this class because I was tired of searching for jeans that fit. These jeans are designed especially for the full curves of the petite woman.  Now I have 4 pairs of jeans that fit me perfectly.  If you fall into the petite plus category, this class is for you.  You will learn to fit the pattern to your measurements and to cut and construct a custom fitted pair of jeans.  Don’t let the single page of sewing instructions fool you. This class is not for the beginner.  In order to be successful you should be comfortable with inserting a zipper and topstitching.

 

Supplies

Jeans or microtex sewing machine needles, size 80/12 or 90/14

*The instructions call for serging all raw edges.  If you own a serger, bring it to class along with your sewing machine.  If you do not have a serger you can use a medium zigzag stitch or overlock stitch on your sewing machine.

 

pattern in class Sizing and fabric selection

Choose a medium to heavy weight woven or stretch-woven fabric.  Cotton denim fabrics with spandex are ideal. Compare your measurements to those on the Petite Plus measurements chart.  Choose you size according to your hip or tummy measurement, whichever is larger.  The waist and waistband can be adjusted after you select the correct size.  We will do these adjustments in class before we cut out the pattern.

Beginning Free Motion Quilting with Lee

Machine quilting is --  straight lines, wavy lines and lines in between  ! Come and

learn machine quilting on your home machine.  Learn the joy of being as one with

your machine.  Ample practice time in class to help you practice at home.

 

Supplies :

  • Sewing machine, cleaned and oiled.    must be able to cover or drop the feed dogs.

  • Sewing machine instruction book

  • For your machine :   free motion quilting foot

  •          Walking foot

  • Thread scissors

  • Rotary ruler  6” x 12” (don’t have this size – then bring the size you have)

  • Pencil  

  • Quilting gloves (must fit snugly)

  • hand gel  “Made by Hand” by Mary Ellen --   I prefer this over gloves !!!

  • No. 2 curved basting safety  pins

  • We will share packs of quilting machine needles and then you can see what works best for you.

 

  • You will need a minimum of 4 sandwiches and then  make more as you need.

  • A sandwich is a piece of fabric – right side down , a layer of batting, and a top layer of fabric- right side up.   These can be pressed together or pressed and pin-basted.

  • Fabric for sandwiches – a solid, either light or dark or one on each side.

  • Mettler or Aurifil  cotton thread -- the color must contrast with your fabrics !

  • Batting – warm and natural cotton… you want reasonably thin

  • The fabric – a 1/2 yard for each sandwich :

  • keep the fold in the fabric… place the batting between, and you have a

  • sandwich !!!

  • A yard of batting could give you 8 sandwiches, about 18” x 20”.

  • Your sandwich should be about 18” x 20” – a few inches bigger or smaller will be fine.

Please use good quality cotton and batting --- this will make a big difference in your quilting !
