Sewing with specialty fabrics doesn't just take skill; it takes confidence. Luckily, Fashion Institute of Technology professor Kenneth D. King is here to help tackle your fabric fears! Join him as he guides you through techniques for velvet, satins, metallics, transparent fabrics, silks and more.
Meet Kenneth King, fashion designer, author, and teacher at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology. He’ll start class by tackling velvet and sharing cutting, marking, interlining and pressing tips, followed by techniques for perfect stitching.
Move onto satins and other smooth-surfaced fabrics, which are lustrous and beautiful but easily marred. Kenneth will show you how to mark, cut and press without damaging the fabrics, how to finish seams to prevent fraying and how to sew a soft, lightly padded hem.
You'll be able to create dazzling garments with lamé and contemporary metallic fabrics after learning to cut and seal the fabric using a stencil knife, stitch without puckering and make a beautiful rolled hem.
