Clare Coat, Mondays, October 23, 30, November 6, 13, 6-9 pm
Skill Level: Intermediate, ages 18 and up
The Clare Coat is a chic cool-weather staple. Featuring raglan sleeves and an unstructured A-line silhouette, Clare is a great introduction to the joys of coat making. View A hits mid thigh, which a face-framing collar, 3/4 length sleeves, exposed asymmetrical zipper and welt pockets. View B has a more minimalist vibe: double breasted, it is hip-length with inseam pockets, full length sleeves and a dramatic funnel collar. You'll learn how to sew raglan sleeves, attach a collar, and insert a lining. This is an intermediate-level class, which means that it will move at a faster pace and homework will be assigned between each class session.

BEFORE YOUR FIRST CLASS: Please come to your first class with your pattern pieces traced. If you need help figuring out what size or sizes to trace, or how to grade between sizes, email email@example.com about connecting prior to class to get your questions answered. We will check your measurements in class and adjust your traced pieces if needed.
Please bring your original pattern and tracing paper to the first session in case we need to make adjustments to your traced pieces. Once we have looked over your traced pieces we will cut fabric together during class.

What is an “Intermediate” level class at Modern Domestic?
You’re no longer intimidated by the idea of reading a pattern and comfortable reading a pattern and have made a number of projects. You would like to learn different methods of zipper installation or how to alter your patterns. You’re venturing into more complicated patterns (e.g., lined garments, plackets, collars, zippered fly). Classes are faster paced and generally require homework.
