Welcome to this new sewing class, in today’s class I am going to teach you how to make the parts of the shirt.
In the previous class, I taught you how to make the patterns that we are going to make today, so I recommend that you see that class first.
Remember to pre-shrink the fabric before cutting the patterns and to cut all the patterns respecting the grainline.
The class begins by sewing the pattern darts, as I told you in the previous class, you can transform the darts to your liking.
Then you will learn how to sew the grow-up placket. Remember that when we make women’s clothing, the plate has to be closed from right to left and the opposite when we make men’s clothing.
Then I will teach you a technique to sew the yoke and make it clean both outside and inside.
To finish, I am going to teach you how to sew the shirt collar step by step. Remember that as I explained in the previous class, we have to fuse one or both layers of the pattern.
As always, if you have any doubts or questions about this class, you can send me an email through your user account in the support section.
Submit your exercises
Remember that when pattern making and sewing, the best way to learn is by doing it yourself. For this class, I am going to ask you to make the prototype that I made in today’s class.
You can do this exercise at real size or at half scale.
Remember to send me clear photos so that I can send you better feedback.
