T-shirts are the perfect wardrobe staple, from short sleeved tops for summer wear, to long sleeved merinos for layering in winter.  Learning how to make your own T-shirts means you’ll never be stuck with T-shirts that don’t fit, don’t last, and don’t have your favourite fit and design features, from hems to necklines.

We’ll work through basic tips to make sewing knit seams easy, with no stretching and warping; how to bind the seams without an overlocker; how to set in sleeves in knit fabrics (pattern dependent), and how to finish necklines and sleeve edges; and finally, how to hem a T-shirt for a professional finish.

Intro to Knits

Students can choose from a number of T-shirt patterns for men or women, and with different cuts and design features.

This class is suitable for intermediate to advanced sewing levels.  Students should be comfortable using a sewing machine, and able to cut and sew precisely.

Materials: Students must supply their own knit fabric and pattern (options include free printable patterns):  suitable patterns and fabric guidelines will be sent upon registration

Cost: $90

To register for the class, please email Leimomi with your name, a contact number and the name of the class you’d like to be in as the subject line.
