The blouse features full-length sleeves with a cuff, a slightly dropped shoulder, and a loose-fitting, dartless bodice. Stylish and versatile, it's perfect for the office but can be dressed up for a night out. We promise -- it'll be the perfect accompaniment to your favorite pencil skirt.

Skill Builder - Series

Once you've taken the Introduction to Sewing Class, you may want to expand your sewing skills. The Skill Builder - Series is a project series geared towards teaching you the additional skills you need to continue your sewing journey.

In the Skill Builder series, you choose from a variety of projects and sign up for blocks of hours to continue learning and advancing your sewing skills. The projects shown below are a sample of some of the projects you can choose from...

The beret pictured above is a good skill builder project. In this project, you'll learn to make your own pattern, sew curves and mold the beret to your head. A JMIS exclusive project, it was inspired by a recent trip to Paris and is similar to one shown in Dior's fall ready-to-wear collection. Allow approx. 2 to 2.5 hours to complete this project.

Make a pattern using your own measurements and make this reverse applique skirt. Besides learning reverse applique techniques, in this project you'll learn to work with knits, learn to use a fold-over elastic to make a waist band, hemming, and more. Allow approx. 2.5 to 3 hours to complete this project.

The third item pictured above is a sweater based on a "Named" pattern. In this project, you'll learn to "recycle" a sweater or sweatshirt or make it "fresh" as a new article. It would be a great way to update an article of clothing. In this project you'll learn how to follow a pattern, finish off edges using a bias binding, etc. This is a fun and not-to-difficult pattern that is a season-less style. Allow approx. 2 to 2.5 hours to complete this project.

The last of the item pictured above is fabulous jacket. A slightly more advanced project, it would be a great first jacket to make. Flattering on most figures, you'll learn how to sew a two-piece collar, set in a sleeve, create a back pleat, do button holes and more. While you will need to allow approx. 6 hours or more to complete this project some of this work can be done on your own or at home.

You'll love making and wearing these projects and best of all, when people ask you where you bought it you can say, "I made it myself!". Click here for more information.

The Sewing Basic series is designed as an individual lesson series. Projects/Lessons are scheduled and paid for as individual lessons. For your best value, we recommend purchasing a block of hours. Call us to schedule your date today!
