Sewing - Fly Front Zippers
This purely techniques class will step you through the process of sewing a fly-front zipper. After the class, with your newly gained fly-front zipper skills, you’ll have the confidence to tackle the trickiest sewing part of jeans and trouser sewing.
Teacher: Anna Ng
Workshop Duration: Half Day
Description: Are you interested in sewing your own jeans or trouser and would relish the chance to sew a sample fly-front zipper without the pressure of making a finished garment? Then this half day techniques class is just what you’re looking for.
Using a single-sized cut-down pattern created especially for this class, Anna will step you through the process of sewing a sample fly-front zipper. Specifically, the class will focus on:
The wonders of machine basting
Those necessary but sometimes confusing fly extensions and facing pattern pieces
Materials to bring: There will be a materials change for this class that includes the sample fly-front pattern & instructions and denim fabric. Details to follow.
Students to bring:
All purpose navy & one other colour polyester thread (the second colour is for machine basting)
Sewing machine with a zipper foot
Two bobbins (one for each thread colour)
Denim sewing needle (a brand new one will give you the best results)
Takeaway: At the conclusion of this class, you will have sewn your very own fly-front zipper sample. Please note, this will not be a wearable garment, but a sample piece showcasing all the new skills you’ve learnt.
Level: Advanced Beginner
Prerequisites: Familiarity with a sewing machine and straight-stitching experience.
