Difficulty: Some sewing clothing or accessories experience required (1+ project is ok!)

About: Learn how to draft your own clothing in this three-part class focusing on button-up shirts

June 6th: We'll go over what pattern drafting is and review reference materials. We'll then take measurements and start drafting our basic shirt patterns. Some home drafting time might be required (hand out provided)

June 13th: We'll use our patterns to sew a fitting muslin. We should also have time to start on adjustments

June 20th: Finish adjusting muslin. Apply adjustments to pattern, double check for accuracy, add facings/collars/pockets~

By the end of this class, you'll have an idea of pattern drafting, fitting, and editing basics! You'll have a basic shirt "pattern block" by the end of the class you can use to make a basic button up or modify further. There'll be an optional follow up class in July for sewing a final shirt.
