About Sewing at the Beach...

       In January of 1994, the Stranded Smockers and Stitchers hosted their first Sewing at the Beach, a four day sewing workshop held in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.  Over the last twenty plus years, this annual event has grown to include pre-day classes, specialized machine and hand sewing classes, and a full selection of optional night classes. Due to popular demand, the 24th annual Sewing at the Beach will offer an even wider variety of classes for every type of sewing enthusiast!

Red Pique Bow Jacket and Matching A-Line Sailor Collar Dress – Gail Doane

18 hour Fine Machine Sewing taught Thursday, Friday and Saturday

THIS IS A BRAND NEW CLASS – DEBUT AT SATB 2017

 

The focus of this three day class is fine machine construction. The ¾ length red cotton pique jacket provides many opportunities to fine tune your construction skills. The jacket is fully interlined with “baby” interfacing for stability and wrinkle resistance. The full lining pairs a combination of the coordinating red pin dot pique with anti-static poly lining for ease slipping on and off. The focal points on the jacket front are two full single welt pockets cleverly concealed behind piped and covered button embellished bows. The entire perimeter of the jacket, collar edges and turn back cuff edges are finished with mini-piping which eliminates almost all hand hemming on this project. Learn how to work with a men’s wear style two piece sleeve complete with ¼” shoulder pads. The turn back on the sleeve also allows for a full year of growth room. The coordinating A-line sailor collar dress is a study in tailored simplicity combined with precise construction details. The red and white pin dot pique dress is fully lined with white imperial batiste and features red pique piping at the perimeter of the sailor style collar, waistline, sleeve and hem edges. Perfect setting in a tailored sleeve on the dress and jacket with no puckers or gathers across the cap. The easy fit on this project makes it a natural choice for girls of all shapes and sizes. The pattern will be provided in class in sizes 4, 6, 8, and 10.

Student Requirements:  /Sewing machine, #70 and  #80  machine needles, must have foot suitable for making mini-piping, 18” clear ruler, fine point washout marker or Frixion pen, must have press cloth, paper scissors, Scotch tape, two sheets tissue paper for lengthening pattern, rotary cutter/blades, ruler, mat (optional but helpful), basic sewing supplies.
