Come and sew a shirt or shirt dress. We will be using Tilly and the Buttons Rosa pattern to make a super stylish shirt/dress with all the details you can fit on it. It will be a 2 day in depth look at the techniques involved, and how to get that perfect finish. You will learn to sew yokes, collars, cuffs, plackets, pockets, seam finishes and shaped hems. The final look depends much on the fabric you choose, lightweight denim with contrast topstitching for that ‘Yehaa’ cowgirl look (my fave) fine needlecord, double gauze, or viscose for a smart casual look, cotton - shirting or quilting - and printed cotton sateen that would take you out for dinner or to an office meeting. The choice of style is yours.

You I’ll leave with a well fitted shirt or shirt dress
