This SPRING our student (designers) will Recreate the Monarch Top online.
This silhouette is not only simple but, its creative and unique. The silhouette is very flowing to be worn all year around. Choose a solid, geometric or even a fun floral.
You’ll start with:
*Taking your fabric, designing and rendering your fabric onto your design
*Measuring your silhouette for accurate sizing
*Cutting out your paper pattern on your fabric
*Pinning and sewing your design together
*Virtual Fashion Show on the last class
Fabric info– KNIT FABRIC (stretchy fabric)- you will need 1.5 – 2 yds depending on your top length. Choose to buy your fabric through us for $30.00 or online through a retailer like Joann Fabrics.
Worried about getting fabric in time? Purchase your Fabric from FFW- email us if you’d like to purchase fabric from us. We have a large selection of patterns and solids. After you email us at Renee@fashionfirstworkshops.com we will send you photos of our selection. Delivery of fabric-we can drop off at your location or send it to you via USPS.
BUY THROUGH FFW-If you choose to buy our fabric please add this to your cart at checkout. After you place your order I will email you the selection we have on hand for you to choose from. We will then mail, or have the fabric available at one of our locations (Madison & Netherwood Hts. Plainfield, NJ).
SEWING MACHINE RENTAL– Rent our machine for $75.00 per week. Drop off and pickup available.
Security deposit fee required ($125.00) which is refundable to you after you return & assessment of the sewing machine.
BUYING A MACHINE– Machine recommendations. We love Janome machines, we use the Magnolia 7313. Janome sells a less expensive machine Janome 2212 under $200.00.
Singer machines we recommend Singer HD 4432, 4452 or 4411 (both are under $200.00). We suggest to buy a machine with a drop in, top loading bobbin (these are much easier to use and have more options) All of these machines as mentioned above allow you to customize your stitches to suit your sewing needs.
Additional charges may apply for international students
