Theatrical Tailoring

The complexities of traditional tailoring is explored in this class.  Using a standard sack suit pattern, students create fully tailored wool coat to their measurements or those of a model.  Students learn that tailors are “made” not born though practice and repetition of traditional techniques.  Contemporary, speedier techniques are also examined and practiced.
