Sewing and Serger Class: Knit Top

McCalls pattern #6964 from Palmer/Pletsch (view B or C) will be used for this class.  The pattern is available here at the shop for purchase ($8.00).  Students will need to bring 1.5 yards of 60" wide medium weight knit for class.  We do not have knit fabric at the store so be sure to purchase it prior to class.

Please have your pattern pieces cut out before class.   Do not wait until the last minute to cut your fabric, we have back-to-back classes scheduled that day and cannot delay the start of class so that you can cut your pattern pieces.  You can call the shop anytime before the class day and reserve a time when we don't have other classes to cut your pattern pieces out here.  If you need assistance, let us know at that time, so we can schedule someone who sews garments to be here.  

You will need sharp pins with a head that's easy to grasp, sharp fabric scissors, a tape measure, fabric markers, and the usual sewing supplies.  We have all those items in the store for purchase at a 10% discount for students.  Bring your sewing machine and threaded serger if you have one.  We will be using the 4 thread overlock machine.  If your sewing machine is too heavy to transport, you can use one of ours.  You can also use our sergers.

If you have a portable ironing station and travel iron, this would be a good time to bring it to class.

Bring a t-shirt that fits you well so we can compare measurements to the pattern.  Knit tops have a negative ease, so it can be a little tricky to figure out which size to use.
