Fine Shirt Making

Learn the art of fine shirt making from a prize winning fine shirt maker.

NOTE: This is a class for intermediate to advanced sewers.

What is a fine shirt? It’s a classic dress shirt made with the traditional and best construction methods used by fine tailors around the world.

We take a typical shirt pattern and elevate the construction techniques to the highest level. You will learn techniques not found in consumer patterns – techniques that are found only in the most expensive custom-made dress shirts. The techniques you will learn will elevate your garment construction skills and can be applied to other garments.

This is an intensive five-section class with additional work required outside of each class to complete a fine shirt.

Students must use an appropriate instructor-approved pattern, which we will alter for fine tailoring techniques.

A supply list, pattern requirements and pre-class instructions will be provided upon registration.

Students at Bobbin House Studio have the option of taking one or all sections, however regular class and mentoring fees apply if registering for only one section.

Discount rates apply only when registering for two or more sections at time of registration.

Each section is a three hour class or two hour mentoring session.
