Jane Foster's couture sewing classes teach students principles of couture garment construction. These couture sewing workshops start with information on couture techniques, proceed to the designing, fitting, and jacket construction stages, and end with selecting and applying the trim. Each jacket is individually designed by the student with the guidance of Jane.
The design of each students jacket was unique, and seemed to fit their lifestyle and personality. Jane Foster also helped them select fabric that was in harmony with the color of their hair, skin, and eyes. They all look fabulous.
Below are of some of the jackets made in Jane's couture sewing workshops.
Jane Foster and Students toast completion of their couture jackets.
Carrie completed the sewing of this couture jacket during a Sewing Retreat and Vacation with Jane. Its looks great on her.
Barbara liked her first couture jacket so well she decided to make a second one. Look at her fabulous trim.
Susie's looks fantastic in her new couture jacket.
Maria chose just the right coloration to harmonize with her own coloring. And the fit Jane was able to achieve for her is perfect. She looks so good.
The frayed edges, trim, and buttons finish off the look.
Maria used silk screens and to decorate her silk charmeuse lining. The typical metal chain used in a couture jacket can be seen at the hem.
Cathy found the fabric for this jacket in Paris, and the trims at Britex Fabrics. She used her own muslin pattern.
