Learn to sew knit fabric on a regular sewing machine with this Intro to Jersey course, specially created for your little ones in mind.

The versatile Elm T-Shirt, by Poppy & Jazz, is a great wardrobe staple for kids of ages 0-3 months to 6 years. It features three different neckline options and two sleeve lengths, giving lots of variations. The neckband can be sewn either as a skinny or wider width, and there’s also the option to add a handy press stud opening on one shoulder, making the t-shirt even easier to get over wriggly ones’ heads!

What will you learn?

In the first session we will trace the pattern and cut your fabric.

In the second session, we will construct the top, sew crisp neckband, sewing sleeves and twin needle or zig zag the neckline and hems.

Who is this workshop for?

This workshop is suitable for adults who have good knowledge of sewing and is very confident sewing with cotton or other medium weight woven fabrics. I like to keep workshop sizes small, giving you lots of one on one time and the opportunity to ask as many questions as you like. The maximum workshop size is 6.

What is included in the course? And what do I have to bring?

We will be using the Elm T-Shirt pattern from Poppy & Jazz. You'll get to take the pattern home to replicate the top as many times as you like. You will trace of the pattern and tracing paper is included. 

Please bring fabric. The Elm T-Shirt is designed for lightweight knit fabrics, such as cotton jersey.
