The Parisian Jacket Course

Regular price$95.00

The Parisian Jacket will be a charming addition to your wardrobe. It has a notched collar, cut-on 3/4-length sleeves on the bias, side panels with underarm gussets, pockets in the side front seams, and two center front buttons. It works up beautifully in a range of fabrics:  from linen to boucle, piqué to plaid, and everything in between. You'll learn how to sew a notched collar, how to make perfect bound buttonholes (and matching facings), how to install a lining by hand, how to apply a gusset, how to stabilize the hems of the bias sleeves, and much, much more.

You'll be with me every step of the way.  We'll begin, as all couture projects do, with looking at the jacket in muslin, then we'll move on to underlinings and all the little details that make a carefully-sewn jacket so very special.
You'll love making the Parisian jacket, and even more, you'll love wearing it.  Join me for this fun sewing adventure. -Susan

It was such an exciting time, being able to sew for hours a day and do exactly what I love, that things have paled in comparison since then.  Work isn’t very exciting anymore I just want to sew.


I just wanted to thank you again for an absolutely amazing week of learning. Not only did I come away with a gorgeous jacket but my levels of confidence and sewing inspiration were increased tenfold!


I am so enjoying your online course The Couture Dress. You are so delightful with your presentation and what makes the course so great is your heartfelt commentaries about the process not just the procedures.
