More Overlocker Skills! – Make a Tee Shirt Friday 7th May 6 – 9pm


Learn ‘beyond basics’ overlocker skills and sew the Plantain T-shirt by Deer and Doe in a evening!

In this ‘More Overlocker Skills’ workshop, you will apply some of the techniques learnt in our Overlocker Basics workshop to making a garment from stretch fabric. Overlockers are the natural friend of knit or stretch fabric and the skills you learn can be applied to a wide range of stretch garments. Learn the tricks of professionally applying rib bands to necklines, sleeves and hems along with other hemming techniques using both your overlocker and sewing machine. We will show you how to use sewing patterns designed specifically for stretch fabrics (including layout, cutting and marking).

Skill level: Suitable for students who have completed our Overlocker Basics workshop or similar. Students must be competent using an overlocker for basic sewing and finishing. You will have an understanding of how to thread your machine and troubleshoot tension problems.

We will provide: Overlockers if you need to use one of ours. All other sewing equipment.
