Working with New Look 6470 you’ll learn how to:

  • make pattern adjustments to improve fit, such as altering the size of a collar, and stand
  • do full and small bust adjustments with a single dart
  • create fully finished shirt yokes
  • sew collars with collar stands
  • set in sleeves (depending on the view you choose) or finish sleeveless armscyes
  • create beautiful front button plackets
  • sew lovely buttonholes
  • sew curved hems

More advanced students will also learn how to create french and flat felled seams, for a perfectly finished interior.

You’ll be making Views B or C, without a pocket.

Students should expect to do 1-2 hours of sewing a week outside of class.  Most students will finish their top within the 5 weeks.

Cost: $165 (includes patterning tissue for pattern adjustments).

Materials: Students will need to provide the pattern, the fabric and thread for their top and any notions called for in the pattern.  Recommendations will be provided when you register.
