Are you ready to get into more complicated construction techniques but don’t have the time for traditional tailoring techniques? Soft tailoring, with the strategic use of fusible interfacings, is the key.

Learn where and how to interface, the perfect set-in sleeve, bagging a lining. Sew a jacket with a personal fit and many tailoring techniques. Plus you'll learn the secrets of interfacing a ladies jacket to avoid the traditional, time consuming pad-stitching.

In this web seminar recording, Josie Jansen, designer and sewing teacher, will take you through the construction of a well fit, soft tailored jacket you’ll be able to wear with pride. This web seminar recording is for the experienced sewer who wishes to broaden their skills with refined techniques.

Josie Jansen has more than 45 years of sewing experience. Her passion for sewing with fine fabrics was developed by a need to sew for herself, at a time when ready-to wear for tall women was not readily available. She recently fulfilled a long standing goal of complementing outstanding sewing skills with the new found knowledge of Fashion Design. She graduated from Fanshawe College in 2010. She is presently teaching sewing in Continuing Education at Fanshawe College and doing freelance work.
