DEADLINES AT A GLANCE:
August 15: Waldemere Knit Top Class Deadline
Aug 3: ASG National Conference Begins
For those of you that attended Deb Canham's January workshop, this is where you can put those learned serger techniques into use! We will guide you in making a knit top, Butterick number B6334.
This is the perfect opportunity to create a top from your Pennie Challenge fabric using one of their fantastic knits. If you have never sewn a knit top before and want to give it a try this class is a must. If you are experienced and want to elevate your bodice fitting or garment design to that next level, this workshop is for you.
In this workshop we will cover length, circumference and depth adjustments. You will learn how to make front and back alterations for your body's neck, shoulder, bust, waist and hip.
The morning will focus on your needed pattern or muslin alterations. The afternoon will focus on construction techniques for this pattern.
Any level of experience on sewing machines or sergers is welcome. Please bring either or both types of machines. We will have at least 2 sergers and 2 sewing machines available for general use.
This Connie Crawford pattern can be purchased locally or online (https://butterick.mccall.com/b6334 ) and is available in two sizes, XS-XL or 2X-6X.
