On this 2 day course you will make your own Over Shirt and also have lifetime access to the online workshop versions as well.

Level:

This course is aimed at intermediate sewers. Students should be very familiar with a sewing machine and have made at least one garment with detailed sewing techniques. Our online Frida Shirt workshop would be perfect preparation before attending this course.

What you will learn:

This workshop will elevate your sewing skills and improve your confidence through teaching a wide range of classic shirt making techniques. You will learn how to sew with precision, using run & fell seams, sewing complicated plackets & cuff openings, classic collar construction and plenty of detailed top stitching. 

The course will cover the following:

  • Run & Fell seams
  • Patch pockets
  • Classic collar and collar stand construction
  • Cuff with a placket opening
  • Sandwiching a double back yoke
  • Topstitching details
  • Hemming
  • Sewing on buttons
  • Button holes

Materials List:

We will provide all your tools along with your fusing. You'll just need to bring the following:

- Fabric & buttons (see patterns for requirements)

- Matching threads

- You will receive pre-printed patterns in the post which you'll need to cut to your correct size before the course starts

Timetable:

The course will run from 10am - 5pm on both days with 30 minutes for lunch. You'll receive a printed timetable along with your patterns roughly 3 weeks before the start of the course.

We will provide tea, coffee and snacks but you will need to bring your own lunch.

Studio Workshop Booking Terms

Covid terms - In the event that there are restrictions on travel & distancing, we will review the situation and take necessary action to reschedule. If you personally cannot attend the workshop due to self isolation restrictions we will help to find a space on another workshop at a later date. Please note that we are a small business and we would prefer to reschedule rather than refund in the event of cancellations.

Non-covid terms - Our workshop bookings are non-refundable and non-exchangable. Please check the dates carefully before making your booking.

You will receive both an A4 & A0 digital pattern along with step by step sewing instructions. You can either print your pattern at home on an A4 printer or send the A0 digital copy to a printing shop (there are many that do this for a very reasonable price). If you decide to print in A4 you will need to piece the tiles together to make one huge page. There is a guide on how to do this included in the instructions.
