Online Sewing Classes  April 2021

We will be making the Alex Shirt by Sew Over It

You may choose to do a different pattern like the Gilbert by Helens Closet, Libby Shirt by Sew Over It, Natalie Shirt by Seamworks or any shirt without a collar stand, similar to a camp shirt. However if you are a complete beginner it may be best to do the same pattern that I will be doing.  Hope to see you in class soon.
