    All About Buttonholes: From Basic to Bound! An Evening with Pamela Leggett - Wed, June 2 - 7pm ET

    LECTURE-STYLE EVENING EVENT - Wednesday, June 2, 2021 - 7-9pm ET via Zoom

    All About Buttonholes: From Basic to Bound! An Evening with Pamela Leggett

    Do you avoid making a garment with buttonholes? They can seem a little scary! Modern sewing machines, especially computerized machines, have a wide range of buttonholes available. But which one to use, how do you line them up evenly, and what is the best way to cut them open?

    Do you use your sewing machine to sew on buttons? If not, you won’t believe how easy and secure they are when attached with the machine! Learn how to line them up properly with the buttonholes, make a shank, and use a unique fusible thread that will keep the buttons from falling off.

    Now on to something fancier! Bound buttonholes are the sign of a quality fashion garment (think Jaqueline Kennedy during the White House years). They take a little more time but are just a series of steps – Pamela will take you through them one step at a time.

    And to wrap it all up, how about some specialty and decorative buttonhole ideas? See how to do applique, embroidered, hand stitched and others. So get comfy, grab your favorite beverage and snack and enjoy a fun and informative evening at home with Pamela! Hope to see you there!

    Tankini DIY Class with Pamela Leggett - 3 WEEK CLASS

    3 WEEK CLASS - Monday, June 7, 14, 21, 2021 - 7-9pm ET via Zoom

    In search of a well-fitting swimwear solution? Let’s DIY a couple of Pamela’s Patterns and create a modest and practical tankini. Substitute swimwear fabric for fashion fabric and you will be set to sew!

    Your tankini adventure starts with Pamela’s Patterns #105 The Perfect Tank Top. The silhouette of this pattern is just right for a super nice tankini top. You can adjust the length and width of the tank to give you the coverage and ease you desire, from cropped and form fitting to long and loose. Choose between two interior options – a shelf bra or add bra cups for a more structured feel.

    Let’s talk bottoms… Pamela’s Patterns #118 Smoothing Shapewear Hollywood Undies will do double duty as a great bathing suit bottom. It is full coverage at the legs and bottom, and we will add a wide band waistband to give you the waist height you desire. You will also have the option of adding interior lining for more control.

    Finish the look with an optional swim skirt, also a part of the Smoothing Shapewear pattern. This skirt can be worn while swimming or as a little extra coverage going to and from the beach. 

    Join Pamela for this fun series – just in time for summer!
