This class is great for anyone who wants to make their first semi fitted garment from jersey fabric using a sewing machine. It is suitable for complete beginners to dressmaking and jersey who have used a sewing machine before.
Although there are lots of variations to this pattern, for this class we will make the simple long sleeve version as shown in our picture. You can make your sleeves a contrast fabric to the main body if you wish. We recommend you use a contrast for your cuffs, neckband and waistband.
The pattern is a PDF pattern and is not included in the cost of the class. You will need to visit the following link TRIFECTA TOP and purchase and download your own copy. Please print the pattern following the print instructions included and bring to class with you along with a roll of clear sellotape! We will cover assembling the pattern and sizing at the start of the class before moving on to cutting out our fabrics.
The fabric requirements for the top are listed in the instructions which are downloadable upon purchase of your pattern.
You will also need fabric for your garment and this is also available from the same website. We recommend you purchase from Kitschy Coo or Pink Scissors to ensure you are getting the perfect jersey for your chosen pattern as we know we can rely on these companies quality.
Pink Scissors offers a 12% discount on all jersey fabric from http://www.pinkscissorsfabric.com just use code Pink12 at the checkout.
The lovely Amanda at Kitschy Coo has set up a discount for 15% off everything you need (asides from the sellotape) using the code beautifulthings at the checkout which will give you a nice little treat upon paying.
There is a full day session available and a 2 part session available please ensure you are booking the right slot when you checkout. If you are coming for the day you will need to bring a packed lunch with you.
If you are an overlocker user it is entirely possible to make this top 100% on an overlocker using the same instructions we teach, however in class we will be using a sewing machine. You are welcome to go over your seams with your overlocker at the end of the class should you so wish (at home and in your own time)
