Did I just make a T-shirt??? 😲

Absolutely loved this workshop, and my first experience at The Vintage Sewing Bunny! Firstly I was very warmly welcomed into the shop/work area by Lucy; the space was calm and beautiful. My nerves were instantly eased…I was in safe hands.

I’ve dabbled with sewing projects (mainly straight lines and unstretchy fabric), and had never used a pattern so I was initially worried about taking on a pattern with jersey fabric 😣 I needn’t have worried at all, Lucy is the most wonderful tutor who talked the group through the whole process with ease; demonstrating every step and teaching new skills. She made me feel confident and able to pull it off…and I did 🙌

Can’t thank you enough, and can’t wait to join my next workshop experience!!! 🧵 🪡

Excellent workshop!

Could be called jersey for the terrified! Excellent introduction to using jersey with quite a simple but very effective pattern! Two possible t-shirt styles to make with long, 3/4tr and short sleeved options meaning you can walk away with something very different from you neighbour.
Lucy provided step by step tuition throughout at a nice even pace. And the final garment was ready to wear home. I hadn’t even finished the day before I bought more fabric to make more at home…
