Workshop Description: This class will teach the fundamentals of garment fitting that will then be used to create a cotton canvas shell for a vest that fits. We’ll talk about how to take accurate measurements, modify a pattern, construct the garment, and fine tune the fit. You’ll come away with an understanding of how to make a vest that *finally fits* and a pattern that you can use for any fabric or leather. Basic machine sewing skills are helpful.

Materials to bring: Large cutting mat, rotary cutter with new blades, fabric scissors, straight edge, pen/pencil, notebook, 2 meters of medium weight cotton canvas/fabric.

Workshop Instructor: Julie Pierce has been sewing by hand for as long as she can remember and on a machine since a 1970 home economics class. In the years since, Julie has made everything from bridal gowns to rodeo royalty wear. Julie first began making leather clothing in 2009, when she completed a leather jacket to wear at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas. Currently, Julie operates JJ Pierce Co. in Lewiston, Idaho, making bespoke leather garments.

Workshop Sponsors: Leather Machine Co., LLC
