  • Taken accurate measurements to create a perfect fit
  • Sew a patch & in-seam pockets (if included in your pattern)
  • Topstitch accurately to create a polished, professional finishing
  • Sewing buttonholes
  • Constructing yoke, collar, and cuffs

  • Pattern of your choice (please note some of these are PDF only and you’ll need to purchase and print prior to class)*
  • Fabric & notions according to your pattern**
  • Coordinating thread
  • Scissors, pins, marking pens, and any other tools/notions you’d like to use
