Local designer-maker-whizz Cal Patch is back at RosenSpace later this month with a 4-week Make Your Own T-Shirt workshop! This class is a great introduction to pattern-drafting, as well as to sewing with knits.
Pre-class registration required by Wednesday, September 27. To register, send Cal an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Thursdays, September 28, October 5, (skips October 12), 19 + 26 from 6-8pm
- Four 2-hour classes, $160
Note: Students must bring their own sewing machine, and have at least competent beginner sewing skills. Some homework will likely be necessary in order to complete the project.
In this class, you will learn to draft a pattern for a t-shirt, based on your very own measurements. Then you will make a muslin, fit it, correct your pattern, cut out the real shirt and sew it up! New skills you will acquire are sewing with knits, stretchy hem finishes, and finishing the neckline with a self band. Once you’ve made your first, you’ll see how many possibilities there are are for all sorts of modifications. You might never buy another T-shirt again!
