An adorable woven top in a raglan style with a gathered neckline, this is a great beginner garment.
In this two day six hour class, we will make a simple woven top while learning how to:
- Layout a pattern
- Cut out a pattern
- Set in a raglan style sleeve
- Finish seams
This class will be led by Niku Arbabi of xostitches.net.
Pre-requisites: Ability to operate a sewing machine on your own. Recent sewing experience. Our Meet a Sewing Machine or Sewing 101 class qualifies you for this course!
Pattern is included in the class price, and will be reserved for you at the shop for pick up!
PREP WORK: Press and rough cut paper tissue pattern!
(Your pattern will be set aside at the shop a week before class for you to pick up)
Using a dry iron on medium heat, press pattern tissue to flatten any wrinkles or creases. Cut each pattern piece in a blob to separate it from the larger sheet. Do not cut out a size or cut on any lines, just a blob around the piece. We will measure and do sizing before we cut any actual pattern pieces out in class together.
Wash your fabric to pre-shrink fabric. Regular cold wash and tumble dry is fine for most fabric, and be sure to press (iron) fabric as well.
