About the Class

Dress shirts are a staple in women's and menswear, and they include a plethora of new and tricky steps for a home sewer. From a perfectly pointed collar to a crisp cuff, there are a few techniques that can take you from a blasé blouse to a brilliant button-up. In this three-hour class, you will learn construction tricks and sewing tips to tackle those treacherous collars, cuffs, and plackets and take your sewing to the next level! Join us as we learn: 

  • How to create professional looking stand collars, shirt cuffs, tower plackets & more!
  • Tips on the right interfacing, construction basics, and industry techniques.
  • Common troubleshooting fixes to make your me-mades shine.
