Make a Cute, Easy, Spring Top with Beth Galvin
IN PERSON: Sunday, April 2, 10:00AM - 3:00PM
We'll make a simple but cute pullover woven top using the Agustina Boxy Top pattern.
And we've made it even easier! We've sewn samples of all sizes of this top so you can try it on and determine what size you want to sew. Better yet, there's no need to download or print out the pattern prior to class because we have created templates that you can trace. The Agustina Top is made with only 4 simple pattern pieces so you will have time in class to trace, cut and sew your fun new top. Expect to take home a finished, or close to finished, top and your copy of the pattern so you can make this cute top in every color.
- pattern tracing
- preparing and laying out your pattern pieces
