Description
Will this fabric drape the way the gown in that portrait does? What thread should I use for this garment? Gathering the right materials is essential to getting beautiful results from your costuming efforts. This class will cover terms for fibers, fabrics, and weaves as well as introducing some importance tools for hand sewing. We will consider outer layers, linings and interlinings, courtly garments and everyday clothes. We will discuss both period fabrics and modern substitutes including wools, linens, silks, velvets, brocades, synthetics, and leathers. This class targets a serious beginner or an advanced costumer. The first 15 students can purchase a materials card with 72 samples of fabrics and threads.
