Learn to sew a wardrobe staple - the classic t-shirt! Choose between two knitwear patterns, the Jesse Tee by True Bias or the Old Coast Raglan by Friday Pattern Company. The Jesse Tee features an oversized relaxed fit with a set-in sleeve, dropped shoulder, and two length options: full length or cropped. The Old Coast Raglan is a classic baseball style shirt featuring three-quarter length raglan sleeves. Both patterns are a friendly introduction to garment sewing, sewing with stretchy fabric, or both!

Prerequisite: We recommend our beginner sewing class, Sewing Machine Essentials or equivalent experience. Students should know how to thread a sewing machine to take this class.

Please note: As we all sew at an individual pace, projects are not always completed during class hours. Class participants have complimentary access to our Parkdale Studio space during Sew By The Hour times until their workshop project is completed.

This class is two 3-hour sessions that meets each Sunday July 21 & 28.
