#501: Tailored Jacket

by Olga Kazanskaya

Fri, Jun 22 – Sun, Jun 24 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM


Seminar Fee: $445

Design and create a unique nunofelt jacket or coat for any occasion in 3 days with Olga Kazanskaya. Olga will bring sewing patterns for all basic sizes. Then we will go to felting and will create a jacket in a “sandwich” technique: two layers of silk with one layer of wool in between using the special fine silk from Uzbekistan and/or rayon fibers. We may create geometrical patterns using dyed silk. Then, we will perform the felting and fulling steps, trim the details and then sew them together. Due to this technique, we will be able to fit the jacket, especially the sleeves, to the body. Imagine wearing a piece of clothing that is exclusively tailored to your body shape and suits you to perfection, moreover, the fabric for it is also created by you.

A $80 material fee will be collected at the seminar. Please bring this amount with you to the event.
