Patchy gets Punk: Cal Patch sewing with knits T-shirt/skirt 9/17
CAL PATCH Sewing a knit t-shirt and/or skirt
There’s nothing cooler and more loved than your favorite t-shirt. Starting with a simple square of knit fabric, Cal will show you how to stitch your very own, made-to-measure, stylish tee or skirt. Learn when to finish seams and when to leave the edges raw; to control and cut different kinds of knits; and to create a professional neckline or waistband. Cal will inspire you to make an amazing handmade wardrobe that is all yours. You will walk out of this class with new sewing chops and a new DIY attitude.
Please have at least advanced-beginner sewing skills, with a few simple projects under your belt.
Make this a DIY weekend and sign up for Cal's pattern drafted leggings class and walk away with an entire outfit!
