Boost your skills for sewing closures in an inspired array of styles. With pattern designer Marsha McClintock as your guide, you'll make your garments stand out with clever cut-on closures or capture a chic, understated look with in-seam buttonholes. Add a new focal point to your garments with corded closures and sew reversible button bands for twice the fun. Then, create triangle or origami buttonholes that are an eye-catching style statement. Plus, achieve a fun, trendy look with easy fold-over elastic closures, and bring your garments and accessories together beautifully with tab closures. From classic to contemporary, simple to artful, infuse unique design interest into garments and accessories with creative, customized closures.
Meet your instructor, Marsha McClintock, and dive right into designing cut-on closures. Marsha will show you how to design with the paper templates included in your class materials. You'll then see how to transfer your designs to a paper pattern and to fabric.
If you struggle with traditional buttonholes or want to try a different look, the in-seam buttonhole might be just the technique you seek. Marsha demonstrates how to alter a pattern to accommodate in-seam buttonholes, and how to sew and press them for a professional look.
Cording can add a playful, decorative touch to any garment and can be used to create a variety of closures. Learn how to make your own cording and apply it to your work.
