Foundational Pattern Making: Boxy Tee or Drapey Tunic

Taught by: 

Sewing your own clothes is satisfying and practical. Drafting your own patterns goes one step further and puts the entire design process in the maker’s hands. Learn how to draft a pattern for a simple woven top that can be customized in myriad ways. Keep it short and loose-fitting as a boxy tee, or draft it longer in a fabric with a good drape (like linen), and it’s a drapey tunic. In either style, this basic t-shirt shape makes a lovely blank canvas pattern to use as a foundation for further embellishment such as piecing, quilting, embroidering, dyeing, eco-printing and more! Students should have at least advanced-beginner sewing skills, with a few simple projects under their belt. Those with more advanced skills can customize to their heart's content . Please bring your sewing machine. Snow Farm has machines to share if you cannot travel with yours.
