Join us with Jennifer Stern for the Shirt Jacket Workshop! This workshop teaches how to construct an oversized button down shirt that can be made from heavier weight fabrics like fleece or lighter weight fabrics like flannel or chambray denim. The class will focus on shirt construction details of the collar, placket and cuff. 

This is a unisex pattern, the sleeves are off the shoulder with no bust dart & a boxy fit.  Jennifer will demonstrate how to take it in to create shape in the waist if desired. Sizing ranges from XS – 4 XL.
