Sew a T-Shirt for yourself or for someone you love!

In this class, you will learn how to:

  1.  How to choose a T-Shirt pattern, 

  2.  How to choose the appropriate fabric,

  3.  How to modify the garment pattern based on body measurements,

  4.  How to sew a T-Shirt using a sewing machine, serger and coverstitch machine.

The class is divided into 3 sections:  

Class 1:  Choose and purchase a pattern and fabric. 

        Alter the pattern based on body measurements, and trace personalized                 


Class 2:  Begin sewing the T-Shirt.

Class 3:  Finish sewing and hemming the T-Shirt.

Cost : $60 for the 3 session class 

    Variable additional cost based on the pattern and fabric selected.  Please bring a check or credit card to the first class to cover the cost of the pattern and fabric.


    *NOTE:  Much of the success of sewing a garment depends on selecting the appropriate pattern and fabric.  This is why the teacher sells the patterns and fabrics to the students during the first class.  Because high-quality garment fabric is not widely available in the Omaha area, the teacher stocks the fabric from her home.  The teacher will bring dozens of fabric samples in a wide range of colors and patterns to the first class.  After a student chooses their fabric, it will be cut and pre-washed and brought back ready to sew for Class 2.       

If you are making the T-Shirt for someone besides yourself, please bring these measurements to Class 1:

  1.  Full Bust or Chest :  __________ inches

  1.  Waist : __________  inches

  1. Full Hip :  __________ inches
