ONLINE: Sew a Tunic Shirt or Shirtdress with Beth Galvin
Time & Location
About the Event
May 11- 27 (6 Meetups)
Tuesdays & Thursdays from 7-8:30pm (PDT)
Looking to build your skills and make new sewing friends? It's always more fun to sew together! This online class is part formal class instruction from our expert garment instructor, Beth Galvin, and part sewing social time sprinkled with helpful hints, tips, and (virtual) helping hands.
We love the chic look and classic style of the Kalle Shirt & Shirtdress from Closet Core Patterns, but, if you'd prefer to work on a different tunic style shirt or shirtdress pattern, we can accomodate that! The Kalle pattern is the perfect look for spring and summer! When choosing patterns to base our classes on, we particularly appreciate patterns that have more than one style option, as the best part of working with a pattern is perfecting it and then using it more than once. With the Kalle, you can take the basic pattern and use it to make a variety of different pieces that vary in style and length, making each item unique!
This class will cover:
- Pattern adjustments and fitting
- Making beautiful plackets
- Tips and tricks for better construction and faster sewing
This session meets each Tuesday when Beth will introduce a new topic or skill that will be related to the project. Then meet up again on Thursdays for Social Sewing.
