If you’ve never used a serger or if you need a refresher, this class will get you going and help to build confidence. We will also give you options for getting the best results with knits on a regular sewing machine!
This modern, slim-fitting t-shirt pattern is a wardrobe staple that can be sewn up with a crew-neck or a 1” henley placket and long or short sleeves. It suits both fine or medium weight knits to create either a shirt or light sweater. The sleeves and hem can be turned and hemmed or finished with bands (a great option for beginner sewers!).
Instructions for sewing with knits are thorough and include finishing suggestions, step-by-step illustrations and both beginner or intermediate sewing options.
This pattern is a modern slim-fitting design with athletic sizing. It is a classic garment that lends itself to creating the perfect casual, hand-made wardrobe for an active lifestyle. This pattern is unisex and therefore this workshop would suit men or women making for themselves or someone else!
A printed copy of the Strathcona Henley pattern by Thread Theory is included for each student (retail value $24).
