Instructor

Learn the secrets of tailoring a jacket from fashion designer, Fashion Institute of Technology instructor, and Threads Magazine Contributing Editor Kenneth D. King.

This 5-hour class is the equivalent of a college-level course in custom jacket tailoring.

Kenneth covers “old school” jacket tailoring techniques, including:

  • Interfacing
  • Shields
  • Shoulder pads
  • Pad stitching
  • Collar felts
  • Interior pockets

Kenneth also gives you his own “new school” tailoring techniques.

This class is filled with great information on these situations:

  • Turn-of-cloth
  • Tailor’s tacks and stays
  • Using silk organza for stays
  • Drawing in an armhole
  • When to use a pressing cloth
  • How to stretch curves
  • Foundation layering
  • Vents

Plus a BONUS video: What’s in Kenneth’s tool kit?

 

 

 

This class is also available as a 3-DVD set from the Taunton Store.
