Learn to sew your own classic button up shirt. In this two day workshop you will be guided through sewing a classic button up shirt. Aimee will guide you through classic shirt making techniques to sew the Closet Core Jenna Shirt.

You'll leave with a beautifully crafted shirt and the confidence to tackle shirt making on your own. You will learn to sew a traditional shirt collar, cuffs and placket, yoke, and more. Set in the idyllic White Swan private dining room, this two day workshop is fully catered and the perfect opportunity for a Sewcation with other like minded makers.

Skill level - adventurous beginner/intermediate + Restricted to eight participants - so get in quick! Save $40 when you book before 10th June.

You will be using the Jenna Shirt pattern - this is a loose fit shirt, so the focus of the class is sewing techniques, not fit alterations. There is a lot to pack in, so you will need to prepare and cut out your fabric before arriving. We will then get right into the nitty gritty of shirt making!
