If you know your way around a sewing machine and are ready to tackle truly tailored garments, Pam Howard is the teacher for you. With patient and thorough lessons, she leads you through the creation of the classic dress shirt, from layout and cutout to topstitching and flat-felling (no special sewing machine foot required). With its crisp collar, even buttonholes and perfectly turned cuffs, your shirt will look as professional as the skills you've acquired. While this class is intended for intermediate sewers, even beginners will come away with a better understanding of the craft and a project to work toward. Sew a flawlessly finished wardrobe staple and add finesse to your skills!
A bespoke shirt is a luxury you'll be able to afford once you learn the skills to sew your own! Meet Pam Howard, your guide on this sewing adventure.
Learn the features of a tailored shirt and consider your fabrics. Pam discusses how to choose and adjust a pattern, and discusses the right interfacing and notions for the job.
Learn how the pros match stripes, prints and plaids and deal with fabric with a texture or obvious diagonal pattern. Lay out and cut your pattern pieces and mark with tailor's tacks.
