About this class

Learn how to make a beautiful and simple top from scratch in this fun and creative class.

Did you know?

Ever wondered which clothing material is the most expensive in the world? Well, we are here to tell you that it is the much sought-after vicuña wool. The vicuña camel from which the wool comes is only shorn once every 3 years, hence why the material is so rare and expensive. Weave some gold into it and it's almost $1,800 a yard

In this class

In this intermediary class students will make their very own top, either sleeveless or short-sleeve, in their chosen fabric, using a commercial pattern. The class will cover:

  • How to use a home dressmaking pattern
  • How to lay, mark and pin the pattern to fabric and cut out.
  • Sewing seams
  • Making darts
  • Attaching a facing.
  • Making a back neck opening
  • Attaching a sleeve [for the sleeved version]
  • You will them hem, press and finish your top ready to wear.

Now you can

  • Make as many tops as you wish at home, for yourself or as a personal gift to friends and family
  • Build upon what you have learnt to experiment with other techniques
  • Pass on these skills to friends and family
