Sew: Unisex Hawaiian Shirt



We have added another unisex pattern to our workshop range! In this workshop, you will be working with a pattern from our new range of patterns by The Fashion Box. You must have used a sewing machine before and made at least one garment before. Or you will struggle and fall behind in this workshop. You will bring along your own fabrics for this workshop, and cut out your own garments. We have sizes ranging from XS / S / M / L / XL / XXL All patterns in the Fashion Box catalogue will be based on retail sizing, so no need to worry about sizing and fit! In this workshop you will learn the following techniques: Using a clothing pattern Pattern markings - reading them and understanding them Layplans - laying your patterns on fabric Cutting out Sewing a 'Burrito method' yoke Sewing a rever collar French seams Sewing in shirt sleeves Sewing buttonholes on your machine with the buttonhole foot Sewing buttons 'on' with the button foot (no more handstitching on buttons!) Hemming and pressing Fabrics: You will need to bring 2 metres of fabric, no less than 115cm wide in width and 5 shirt buttons. There are some exceptions to this, if you are buying, for example, and Ankara fabric, because the width of the fabrics is very narrow, you will need a little more. If you are buying fabric with a directional print, you will need to make sure you cut all the pattern pieces in the same direction, so you will also need a little more. Please note: you will need a shirt type fabric, like cottons, linens etc. you can go as bold as you like with print design. If you are new to sewing, please choose crisp cottons or linens. Soft, drapy and fine fabrics are very difficult to sew. If you need advice on fabrics, please do not hesitate to contact us. Maximum 6 people in this workshop. WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING? 2 metres of fabric 5 x shirt buttons DO I NEED TO PROVIDE INFORMATION BEFORE I ATTEND? If you would like any advice on fabrics (prints etc), then please feel free to email Craig, with pics or queries, who will be happy to advise. WORKSHOP DURATION: This is a 5 hour workshop.
