Fit to Flatter Bondi Top Workshop

Making clothing for yourself can be fun and extremely rewarding. Our guest educator, Lindsey Marsh of Sew to Grow, will walk you through step-by-step how to trace, cut, assemble and add the finishing touches to the Bondi Top. The Bondi Top is the absolute wardrobe staple and perfectly pairs with skinny jeans, a great pair of fitted harem pants, or tucked into a skirt. Lindsey will also be demonstrating how to measure yourself correctly and make slight pattern adjustments for a more accurate fit. In this workshop you will be guided from beginning to completion and leave with a perfectly fitting garment. This class is perfect for the confident beginners and those looking to get back into garment making.
