Are you curious about tailoring but don't know where to begin? Do you want to grow and expand your skillset and push your sewing practice to the next level? Want to learn how to make a gorgeous blazer that fits you like a dream?

Welcome to the class designed to demystify the fine art of speed tailoring! Spoiler alert: it's not as hard as you think, and the skills and techniques you'll learn will truly level up your entire sewing practice. That high-end blazer you've always wanted is just a few hours away, only this time it's constructed and fit for your exact body, using professional, industry-level techniques and secrets. 

Learn to Sew a Classic Blazer is a comprehensive online class that guides you through the process of sourcing, stitching and finishing your own custom made blazer using modern speed tailoring techniques. No need for pad stitching or fiddly sew-in interfacings - you'll learn how to use fusible interfacings to quickly add structure and shape to a blazer that will fit like it was made for you (because it was!) 

By following along using the included Jasika Blazer pattern (although the skills and techniques can be applied to any blazer pattern), Heather Lou of Closet Core Patterns teaches each lesson in simple language everyone can understand, so both advanced and novice sewists alike will feel confident creating beautiful, custom-made blazers from the comfort of their own home.

Work at your own pace – anytime, anywhere, on any device – and learn the ins and outs of creating structure with readily available and easy to apply fusible interfacings, along with industry level speed tailoring techniques & skills you'll use forever.

Reviews from Real Students

Incredibly enjoyable and empowering!I had been eyeing off the Jasika Blazer many years before I jumped in and signed up for the online class!! My only regret is waiting so long! Heather explains the steps in a clear and easy to understand manner - while remaining highly encouraging and enthusiastic the whole way! The pattern is drafted beautifully - and the online course is clear and well filmed which makes the entire process so rewarding! I know I will be making another beautiful blazer - after such a successful first toile and then blazer.

I can honestly say that this is my proudest make to date! I've been sewing since I was a about 8 so that's quite a statement.I have done some tailoring before - welt pockets and the like but this was the first time I have made a blazer using wool. The wool I chose was quite thick and that itself caused me to panic but I loved the way Heather Lou reassured me about fabric choice. This course is like sewing along with a friend. She guides you through every stage and you can submit questions and comments along the way. Her attention to detail is fantastic and I think that the tips really helped me sew with great care and precision. All of this equals a great product. Thanks to all involved in creating this resource. I would highly recommend it anyone who is interested in upping their sewing game.

Wonderful Classic Pattern. Really enjoyed making this. The pattern is so well drafted. The tailoring kit was convenient and easier than tracking down all the bits and pieces. I also bought the (“video”) class which was very detailed and had lots of excellent tips. I’ve since revisited the video to apply tops to other makes.

Super cours en ligne pour coudre le blazer parfait !

Un superbe cours en ligne qui m'a aidé à coudre mon premier blazer. Et grâce aux instructions incroyables, il est devenu assez parfait pour le porter au travail ! Pour tous ceux qui veulent se lancer dans la couture de leur propre blazer, ce cours est un excellent compagnon de couture, étape par étape, avec de nombreux conseils et astuces utiles en cours de route.

Le meilleur tutoriel de couture qui soit !

Je n'avais jamais réalisé qu'il y avait autant de parties complexes pour faire un blazer ! Ce cours est rempli d'informations, de conseils et d'astuces, non seulement applicables à la fabrication d'un blazer mais aussi à la couture en général. J'ai été étonnée de la qualité du vêtement fini, alors que je suis une couturière débutante, et ce grâce à l'approche pas à pas très détaillée et facile à suivre. À aucun moment je ne me suis sentie dépassée ou perdue - je pouvais simplement faire une pause, revenir en arrière, rejouer et suivre à mon propre rythme jusqu'à ce que je me sente à l'aise pour passer à l'étape suivante du processus. Je recommande vivement ce cours !

Merveilleux patron classique

J'ai vraiment aimé faire ce vêtement. Le patron est si bien dessiné. Le kit de couture était pratique et plus facile que de chercher toutes les pièces. J'ai également acheté le cours ("vidéo") qui était très détaillé et comportait beaucoup d'excellents conseils. J'ai depuis revu la vidéo pour appliquer les hauts à d'autres créations.

Apprendre à coudre un blazer classique

Ce tutoriel en ligne valait chaque centime que j'ai payé. Une superbe vidéo avec beaucoup de détails qui m'ont énormément aidée à construire le blazer. Je vais certainement acheter un autre tutoriel en ligne.

La réalisation dont je suis la plus fière !

Je peux honnêtement dire que c'est la réalisation dont je suis la plus fière à ce jour ! Je fais de la couture depuis l'âge de 8 ans, ce qui n'est pas rien... J'ai déjà fait un peu de couture - poches passepoilées et autres - mais c'est la première fois que je fais un blazer en laine. La laine que j'ai choisie était assez épaisse et cela m'a fait paniquer, mais j'ai adoré la façon dont Heather Lou m'a rassurée sur le choix du tissu. Ce cours est comme si vous cousiez avec une amie. Elle vous guide à chaque étape et vous pouvez lui soumettre des questions et des commentaires en cours de route. Son souci du détail est fantastique et je pense que les conseils m'ont vraiment aidée à coudre avec beaucoup de soin et de précision. Tout cela se traduit par un excellent produit. Merci à tous ceux qui ont participé à la création de cette ressource. Je le recommande vivement à tous ceux qui souhaitent améliorer leur jeu de couture.
