Mastering Construction: Foundation Techniques Online Class

Start sewing with the foresight and finesse of a designer! Master stitching order and apply sophisticated skills for darts, pleats and seam finishes.

Build a foundation of professional sewing techniques alongside Apparel Arts instructor Sara Alm. Start by learning to create a stitching order for any garment, then use darts to shape flattering garments, and create perfect tucks, pleats and gathers for gorgeous apparel. Stitch smooth matching curves in delicate fabric and join opposing curves and tricky opposing corners with finesse. Then, bring a fabulous finish to garment interiors with understitching and more. Make and apply a simple binding or create a luxurious Hong Kong finish. Move on to sewing sophisticated top-stitched seams, elegant edge-stitching, bulk-free flat-felled seams and more. Achieve clean intersecting seams and eye-catching slot seams. Plus, find out how to seam bias-cut and velvet fabrics flawlessly.
