Sew your own basic t-shirt! This wardrobe staple is remarkably easy to make once you've learned the basics of sewing with knits from our expert garment instructor, Beth Galvin. She will help you get the perfect T-shirt so you can make one for every day of the week!

We love the Closet Core T-Shirt, the pattern is free, and it's a good basic t-shirt in a unisex style that fits many figures. The Rio Ringer T-Shirt by True Bias is another basic tee. If you're more curvy, you may prefer to go with the stylish Concord T-shirt from Cashmerette. If you want a tee with a little more detail, you could pick the Tarif Tee from French Navy. For a t-shirt designed for men, we recommend the Strathcona Henley by Thread Theory.

This class will cover:

- Choosing your correct size

- Pattern adjustments

- Proper fabric cutting and marking

- Tips and tricks for sewing with knits
