About the Event
ONLINE: Prep Session, Thursday, August 18th, 7 - 8PM
IN PERSON: Class, Saturday, August 27th, 10AM - 2PM
If you are just beginning making garments, haven't worked with knits or just want the fun of creating something you'll wear all the time, this is the class for you! Kristen will walk you through making the Closet Core T-Shirt. It looks great, has all the sizes available, and includes a dart for a better fit for our curvy friend. You chose short or long sleeves and whether you want a pocket. Best of all, this is a free pattern!
To make sure that we make the best use of our time together in the studio, we are hosting a prep session to review fabric selection, finding the right size and assembling your pattern. The prep session will be held online, Thursday, August 18th, 7 - 8PM. We will also send you a video of the prep session the following day so you can review the material or watch at your convenience.
