Teen Holiday Sewing: Camisole Top – UsefulBox

Let’s get the kids sewing and crafting!
Choose from block printing, weaving, sewing machine 101, sewing bum bags and teen sewing days!
These workshops really cater for all abilities from beginners to those that have sewn before. To those that would prefer to craft making their own printed canvas bag or weaving a wallhanging!
Our teen sewing classes are geared to get them sewing their first garments!
We are COVID Safe and have current WWCC.

At this teen beginner lesson, we will still take it slow and we will focus on pattern cutting, construction, sewing skills and finishing garments and make a camisole top for ourselves!

We will be making the True Bias Ogden Cami and its super easy to make and lovely to wear, for day or bedtime wear! See some versions here.
