Sew a T-Shirt: £60

Thursday 29th June: 9.30-2.30

T-shirts are the un-sung heroes of the wardrobe for many of us, but how many times have you bought a cheap high-street version which comes out of the first wash a completely different shape, or just doesn’t fit the way you would like it to?

Sewing with jersey/knit fabric can seem daunting to many, but with the right techniques and machine set-up you can make yourself a great quality t-shirt on a domestic sewing machine.

In this 5-hour workshop you will work with a beautifully designed T-shirt pattern comprising of 3 printed A0 sheets. You will be able to take the pattern and full instructions away with you at the end of the day. With this, you can make numerous styles with variations including: cap, short, three-quarter or long sleeves; crew, scoop, boat or ‘V’ necklines.

Everybody sews at different speeds and some students may have more experience or confidence than others. You may like to bring enough jersey for two t-shirts to make the best use of your time on the day.  If you have a t-shirt which you love the fit of, it’s a great idea to bring this along to help with sizing.

One T-shirt will require between 1 – 1.5m of 150cm wide fabric. When you sign up for the class, I can offer advice on where to shop and what sort of fabric is most suitable.
