Supply List:

- Pattern, Shirt No. 1 by 100 Acts of Sewing

- Fabric*, Colleen recommends: lightweight cotton lawn or voile, linen, natural fiber blend woven fabric, or even a cotton woven with a fun print (no jersey or knits)

- 1 spool of Mettler Metrosene All-Purpose Polyester Thread (coordinating or color matching with exterior fabric is recommended) 

- Optional: additional fat quarter (½ yard) or pre-made bias binding in contrast fabric for bias facing. 

- Optional: 3/4" (18mm) bias tape maker

*Make sure to pre-wash (and iron) your fabric in advance of class. This prevents possible fabric shrinkage that could otherwise make your finished garment too small.


Skill Level: Beginner - You’ve taken a class or two and are starting to get comfortable with the basics. You know what a seam allowance is, you’ve sewn a little on your own, but you still need a little help with remembering how to thread the machine and wind a bobbin. These classes usually have little if any homework to complete outside of class time. The prerequisite for any Beginner class is a Sew Basics class, Learn to Sew class, or equivalent. This skill level is not for people who have never used a sewing machine before.
