In this class you will learn to sew a basic button-front shirt/blouse with princess seams, a two-piece collar and inset sleeves. You will also learn many other garment construction techniques as well as simple fitting and pattern adjustments.

Set up an appointment prior to the class to come to the Quilt Barn so we can help you custom fit the shirt pattern. Priced by the hour and separate from the class, fitting the pattern usually takes from 1/2 hour to 2 hours depending on the extent of the changes needed. Then bring the pattern to the class ready to cut out.

You will take home a custom-made shirt and pattern that you can make again at home.

Supplies needed for Button Front Shirt:

Classic Clothing Button-Front Shirt pattern

Please purchase and prewash and dry your fabric prior to the class. This shirt can be made out of a variety of fabrics. These include cotton, cotton blends, batiks, linen and most light to medium-weight wovens. Fabrics with some cotton content are going to be easier to sew than a polyester fabric. Do not use slippery or stretchy fabrics and avoid plaids.

2 1/4 - 2 5/8 yards 45” wide fabric
1 3/4 - 2 yards 60” wide fabric

3/4 yard medium-weight fusible interfacing

Thread to match

Please call or come by the shop if you have any questions or need help with choosing your fabric.
