About This Course

The humble Tee is wardrobe staple. They are easy to fit and can be quickly constructed in a variety of fabrics. This makes them the ideal starting point for learning to sew your own comfortable, everyday clothing in knit/jersey fabrics. And the basic skills learned on this course can be applied to a variety of other garments. 

The Lark Tee is Grainline's newest addition to their line. A highly versatile knitwear pattern, it comes with 4 different neck options and 4 different sleeve length options. 

The course is open to complete beginners and experience sewers alike. So if you've only ever sewn with woven fabrics before, this is chance to try something new. And if you've never touched a sewing machine before, don't worry because we'll be giving you a quick overview at the start. 

Students will be in the safe hands of Susie Haigh, guiding you through a range of topics and techniques, including: Taking body measurements; using a sewing pattern; sewing knits on a domestic machine, choosing knit fabric, using stabilisers and interfacings for knits, basic seams, sleeves, hems and cuffs, and using a twin needle.
