19 November 2018 • The Ultimate Shirt-Making Sewing Course ✄✄✄

If you are thinking about doing this course, do it!! Really enjoyed the process, the flexibility and the way this course was taught. You are given the opportunity to learn the way that suits you. Plus you learn how to make your own shirt.

A hands-on, well documented course. I enjoyed making this pattern, and I'm sure I will enjoy wearing the shirt (blouse!). It was well paced and plenty of time was given to achieve each week's goals, plus the option to do homework after class. A great class for men as there is the option to make a man's shirt too.
