Foundational Pattern Making: Boxy Tee or Drapey Tunic
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.
