Class Title: Shape Shoulders with Short Rows (and say so long to “steppy” shoulder seams)

Teacher Name: Leslye Solomon

Class Length: 3 hours

Class Fee: $55.00

Class Day/Time: Friday 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm

Class Description:

The next time your pattern tells you to shape your shoulders by binding off, ignore it.  Instead, learn how to replace those directions by short-rowing your shoulder stitches to achieve a neater slope.  With this technique, you’ll see how to shape the shoulders, avoid binding them off which prevents an awkward, ugly edge which is always difficult to attractively sew together. Learn the simple process of how to keep the shoulder stitches live but temporarily inactive on the needle using the short-row technique. Learning this will produce a shoulder that sloped yet one long, smooth, angled row.   Practice how to finish the live stitches with an invisible and magical joining technique
