Beginner Garment Sewing: The Essential Summer Top

Are you intimidated by the idea of sewing clothes? Join us to make a basic top that will become an essential part of your wardrobe! You'll learn just how fun and satisfying it can be to make your own clothes.

Beth has pre-made samples in every size for you to try on for fit before you cut out your fabrics, which makes picking your size fast and easy. You can even use your favorite quilting cotton print - just imagine the possibilities!
