Frequently Asked Questions


What if I don't like this shirt/won't wear this shirt?

We chose this pattern because of the excellent opportunity it provides to learn advanced beginner garment making skills. It may not be your favorite shirt but you will gain skills that you can apply to patterns you prefer in the future.


What if my bust is smaller than 32" or larger than 58"?

Contact us before registering. We may be able to alter the pattern to fit your size.


What if I don't finish in 2 weeks?

Everyone should be able to finish in 2 weeks, however if you don't-- and everyone sews at different speeds so it's possible-- you are welcome to attend an Open Workshop to finish up.


Will we cover tailoring so this garment fits perfectly?

No, we won't. This class is focused on learning how to read a pattern and construction. Fitting a garment requires you to make several versions of a garment and we don't have time for that in this class. At the end of class we can make suggestions to pattern alterations that will help make the fit better for the next time!


What if I finish early?

If you expect to finish early, you are welcome to bring garment projects to work on the last day of class with Sarah's assistance.


How do I know if the class has sold out?

If the website will allow you to register for it then we still have space!


What if my question isn't answered?

Never hesitate to reach out to us to ask before registering!
