Commercial Patterns: Tailored Shirts

negroni_archerLooking to expand your sewing repertoire and take on the basics of tailored garments? In this 8 week class students work with one of three sewing patterns to create a custom fit tailored shirt.

Colette: Negroni (Men’s Shirt) 

Grainline Studio: Archer (Women’s Shirt)

Oliver and S: Kid’s Shirt

Students will learn how to sew and attach cuffs, yokes, front button plackets, front pockets, collars and collar stands, and well as how to create buttonholes, attach buttons and sew a narrow hem.

All students will need to purchase a pattern for the shirt they choose to make, which they can then keep to recreate their shirt time and time again. All patterns and sizes are available for purchase at the studio.


Fit samples will be available to try on. Please bring your pre-washed fabric to your the first class. (*if you are unsure of your size, we suggest rounding up when looking at fabric requirements) (**when pre-washing your fabric, wash fabric in the same manner you plan on laundering your finished garment)
