Description

Over 6 x 1 hour weekly workshops, you make a traditional tee or a long sleeve top. Sewing with knit fabrics is not as straight forward as working with woven fabrics, our complete guide will cover everything you need to know in a step-by-step approach.

We will start from the beginning - in workshop 1 all you need is a tape measure. There is time to gather the right tools and supplies after you learn to identify them. Thread Den will prepare your pattern and ship it to you. The plan of ongoing specific and succinct workshops also allows students to complete steps as homework, or unpick and perfect if desired.
