La Chemisette - 2 sessions

gather here Classes

A boxy, retro cut button up short sleeve shirt that will easily become a wardrobe staple. Designed by Atelier Brunette this pattern looks awesome in their fabrics. To capture those 80's summertime vibes use a cotton or linen, for something sassy and fun choose a viscose in a bright bold pattern (only choose this type of fabric if you're and experience stitcher). The forgiving shape of this garment means you won't be stressing about the fit and can instead focus on setting a sleeve and finessing your camp collar.

We *highly* recommend tracing your pattern prior to class meeting.

Limited to 4 students (16 yrs of age or older); 2 students are required for class to meet. If a class is cancelled due to low enrollment, you will receive a full refund.
