Class: Garment Sewing: Friday Pattern Co Donny Shirt with Sarah: Starts Sunday June 23, 10-3 pm (2 sessions)


Join Sarah in sewing the adored Donny Shirt! 

The Donny Shirt by Friday Pattern Co. has been hard to keep on the shelf - and we can understand why! It's adorable! The Donny is a menswear-style short sleeve shirt that offers flattering feminine details such as a gathered back, lined yoke, and lapel collar. In this full day class, you will learn how to sew a self-lined yoke, stand-up lapel collar, gathers, set in sleeves and more. Sizing offered: XS-7XL. 

The class will be offered over the course of two Sundays as follows:

Sunday, June 23, 2024: 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Sunday, June 30, 2024: 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

This class is suitable to confident beginners and above - you must have some prior experience and be able to thread your sewing machine, wind and insert the bobbin, and sew a straight stitch and back-tack. 

Instruction fee is $160. Kit fee $20.00 includes the Friday Pattern Co. Donny Shirt Pattern for a total of $180. Please purchase both the instruction and the kit fee. 

*You will need to pick up your pattern at our shop in order to cut your pieces prior to class. We are open 12-6 Mon-Friday and 11-5 Saturday and Sunday. We are happy to answer any basic questions about sizing and fabric. Please wash, dry, and press your fabric before and either cut out or trace your pattern in the size you'd like to make. During the first class session you'll cut your fabric. 

Suggested fabrics:  The Donny Shirt is designed for woven fabrics. Any sort of light to medium weight woven is suitable. If you choose a fabric like a mid-weight twill or denim you will get a more structured top. If you choose a drapier fabric like a rayon challis or silk, you will get a blousier top.
