About This Lesson
The third and last lesson in the fourth level.
The Vest is a simple unlined style that lends itself well to flat fell seams.
The Shorts have a style like soccer shorts, with a slit on the side seam. The pockets are half-welt style placed on the side seam. All seams are flat felled.
Both projects teach the student to make the inside of the garment look as nice as the outside, one of the important goals of Level 4 "green group" lessons.
This outfit really does wash up just fine in the recommended satin - it has a sand-washed silk look. IMPORTANT! DO NOT buy the 'washable' poly satin, or any other polyester fabrics for this project. They don't press well and it makes felling the seams a miserable task. We know. We tried.
An average student can complete the two projects in this Sewing Lesson Module in about 7 hours each.
