If you love a great button up, but are intimidated to sew them, this workshop is for you! The great news is that once you've sewn one, you've pretty much sewn them all. Sewing plackets are extremely satisfying and will soon become a staple in your wardrobe. In two - 5 hour class sessions, you will be making a button up shirt at our Indie Craft Experience auxiliary location. You can choose from the Closetcase Kalle Shirt/Dress, the Grainline Archer, or the Cashmerette Harrison shirts. But, if there is another button up pattern you would prefer to make email Kari to sign-off that it will be suitable for class.
Please note that this is an Intermediate class and you will be expected to come to class with you fabric pattern pieces pre-cut & ready to sew. The yardage requirement charts are attached.
