In this tutored online class you will learn how to make a woven cami top with delicate pin tucks.
This pattern is for a woven top. You can make it in cotton lawns or poplins or light weight denims. This complements our sleep shorts perfectly to create a cool summer sleep set.
This pattern is drafted for a C cup but if you have a significantly larger bust size please let us know before the class at the time of booking and we can discuss how to make a well fitting top with you.
You will need to cut the pattern to the correct size and cut out the fabric before the class so some experience of using dressmaking patterns is required, however the pattern includes detailed instructions to help you with these steps at home.
Please allow approx. 2 hours for prep time.
During the workshop you will learn how to:
- Work with woven fabrics
- Sew the garment with correct seam allowances
- Create neat pin-tucks
- Make narrow straps
- Finish the neckline with a facing
- Finish the raw edges
- Hem your garment
