Camp Shirt - Salem

Camp Shirt

Would you like some garment sewing experience without a months-long commitment? Come make a camp shirt for summer. Combine a fun print with an easy pattern and Winifred tips for success—you’ll be wearing it to the next BBQ! We’ll determine the correct size and do any minor pattern alterations. Then we’ll cut out the shirt and interfacing, fuse the interfacing and transfer any markings to the pieces. Then we’ll sew the shirt from beginning to the last button!

Instructor: Winifred                     Capacity: 4

Please bring all of these supplies to class, and be sure to put your name on all items you bring (just in case they are left behind).
