Expand your wardrobe as you learn to create a stunning blouse and jacket with Missy Billingsley! In this two-part series, you will learn a variety of serger and sewing machine techniques that you can use on clothing and other projects.
Missy is known for her fancy and fabulous jackets, and the one you will create with her jacket course is no exception. Using a basic, easy-fit jacket, Missy has combined linen-blend fabric and machine techniques to create a very special jacket for her students. You can use the pattern included with the course OR your own favorite jacket pattern. You’ll learn about modifications to the pattern as well as cutting and marking needed before stitching. Then the fun begins as Missy provides all the tips necessary for a smooth, successful outcome using several different machine embroidery designs.
Incorporating serger functions with beautiful heirloom trims and linen fabric, Missy’s blouse is a versatile beauty. Starting with a simple blouse pattern, Missy’s modifications allow you to skip closures of any type, and her clear instructions help increase serger proficiency, confidence, and creativity. Stitch beautiful pintucks and add bridging to both fabric and embroidered insertions as you assemble your blouse front.
