Pattern Design: Students will create and customise an oversized t shirt!  This fashionable shirt has that sloppy joe look with a raw edge finish, you'll embellish by cutting slits, slashing, weaving, putting in gathers, a drawstring or adding extra decorative stitching. We'll teach just what you need to know to walk out with a finished garment at the end of the day. We know that achieving results is an important part of keeping teen sewers motivated to continue!  

Photographed Sample: Made in two way stretch with contrasting sleeves and a decorative drawstring around the neckline.

Styling Ideas & Notes On Supplies: You must choose two way stretch fabric. You could also have contrasting fabric for sleeves and contrasting panels.  Additional embellishments like buttons, trims and ribbons for decorative details. For directional prints or large prints you should purchase extra fabric. For best results - pre-wash your fabric to reduce shrinkage.

Thread Den has the BEST sewing classes for kids. I'm 10 years old and people don't believe me when I tell them that I made my T-shirt and bag (from a different class at Thread Den). I can't wait to do another class with them.
