About This Class

I would like to show you a fun easy project where we will use man's shirt and reuse it for a jumpsuit. It's the perfect summer project and what I like about shirts is that they are nicely done with all the details, and that for project like this we don't need to sew a lot, so it is fast, and we could use our man favorite shirt (just kidding).

But you know the movies when the woman have his man shirt and nothing's just appealing, and we could be that girl. The best part is, we could use this for going out too; OK, maybe not everywhere, but we could. I also like the feel of shirt material, so it's really perfect for the summer sewing project.

Our projects will be a little different, because we won't use the same size and shape shirt, so every jumpsuit will be original itself.

So join me in our new class, and show your finished work, or work in progress; show it to the world, and make one for your girlfriend....and then grab your favorite book, and a glass of lemonade and just enjoy the summer.

I work as self-employed pattern maker-designer a.k.a. Tutorial Girl. I design everything from shoes to clothes and bags … anything I need that I can’t find. I recycle a lot of old jeans into a new hand painted and free motion stitched surface patterns, so my designs are a little bit more personal to me. I have a big wish to become a surface pattern designer some day and the last few years I’m the happiest if my hands are covered with paint. I’ve never grown up and I still live like DIY person.
