Sewing Knits: Sweater // 1 Day //
11/20/20 Update: We are not offering in-studio classes due to new City restrictions on indoor gatherings.
Get cozy this winter in a loose-fitting sweater with a thick cowl neck that you can sew together in just a few hours! With a drop shoulder, boxy shape, and loose neckline, this sweater is the perfect way to wrap yourself in warm fabrics while still looking stylish.
Workshop project: Jarrah Sweater (view D) by Megan Nielsen. We'll be making View D only due to timing. We can show you how to adjust the length of the sleeves. This pattern comes in sizes 0-20 or 14-30 so you'll need to read the size chart and decide which one to purchase ahead of time.
- Working with a digital pattern
- Reading size charts and choosing a size
