FEARLESS T-SHIRTS: Construction & Fit
6 Hour Workshop: All Skill Levels
Thursday, October 20, 9 am 4 pm
(This is a pre-show workshop)
The t-shirt has become a sophisticated and must-have wardrobe item -- we all long for one that has the perfect cut. Ce’s new pattern is designed with a European highcut underarm, ease in the bust area and extra width across the back shoulders. Bust and hip measurements aid in selecting the correct size before you cut and sew the test copy. Then make further refinements as we fit the t-shirt. Once you have a basic, easily change necklines and sleeves. Learn how to select the right knits for the pattern and tweak the pattern to compensate for the degree of stretch in the fabric.
