Sewing Knits! A fun top that can be styled so many ways!

This is an intro to sewing garments class! You ever wanted to start learning how to make your own clothing? Don’t be discouraged, It’s not as hard as you think, with the right instruction, a little practice you are going to love making these basic staple pieces in no time! We will be making the One Hour Top by Fancy Tiger Craft! I have gotten permission from Jamie and Amber already to teach this as long as you download the PATTERN from their site! 

This shirt is a loose fit, batwing style top that is comfortable for all body shapes. You can also alter the pattern to be off the shoulder!
