Regular price $185.00 Sale

It's that time of year - learning new skills to make stretch t-shirts for Summer! It's easier than you think! 

Learn all the essentials in this 6.5 hour workshop, and walk away with a super dooper T-shirt, the Dawson by Helen's Closet (View A).

Stretch sewing is all about tension, needles and the right stitch.  We'll look at those first to understand the theory. 

Then we'll get cracking and cut out our T-shirt (see LOADS of examples here).  We'll focus on seam allowances when we sew it up along with perfecting those necklines.  

Once you have these skills mastered, you can take on any stretch project with confidence and ease!

Please note that this t-shirt is a fitted shirt so f you would like it to be looser, please go up a size or two.
