In this weeknight workshop we will cut and sew the Linden Sweatshirt by Grainline Studio! This is a favorite Indie pattern in the sewing community and it’s easy to see why- it’s a basic wardrobe staple that you’ll find yourself reaching for again and again! The Linden has two views: view A is your typical raglan sleeved, roomy sweatshirt and view B is cropped and without a bottom band to give it a boxier shape. Both can be made with long or short sleeves. The Linden pattern will fit a maximum bust size of 44”, if you are fuller busted please contact us so we can prep a pattern for you!
This class is 3 Thursday nights in a row 3/12, 3/19 and 3/25.
Prerequisite: Our Intro to Sewing Workshop, equivalent private lesson, or This is a Beginner class for those looking to challenge themselves with their first garment. While we will be working with knit fabrics, it is an easy enough silhouette to accomplish if you are only a beginner.
Skills Covered: Picking your size from a sewing pattern, cutting layouts and cutting your fabric, following a sewing pattern, special ways to sew knit fabrics, sewing knit neckbands and cuffs.
Materials Needed: This project is for *knit* fabrics with stretch. Think of the t-shirts and sweatshirts in your wardrobe, aren’t they cozy and stretchy? That’s the same fabric you need to use for this project! Medium weight knits with a minimum of 20% stretch such as French terry, sweatshirt fleece, sweater knits, and jersey are recommended. Please contact us if you have any questions about fabric shopping.
-1 3/4 yards of fabric for all styles will be more than sufficient for you to cut your pattern out up to a size 14. Size 16 and 18 need 2 yards for view A(long sleeves with hem band) If you know what size you may be and would like to be more exact please see the yardage needed chart on Grainline Studio’s website.
-(optional) if you would like to purchase Rib Knit fabric to contrast with your main body fabric, you will need an additional 5/8 yard for view A and 1/4 yard for view B.
-1 spool of matching all purpose polyester thread.
Materials provided: A printed copy of the Linden Sweatshirt pattern (a $20 value) all sewing machines and notions.
