Is there a classic shirt on your list of projects? The Granville Shirt from Sewaholic Patterns (pear shapes) or Harrison from Cashmerette (more curvy, full bust) have front bust dart (princess seams for Harrison), back yoke and back princess seams for optimal fitting options.  Try it out of stretch cotton if you are looking for something more comfy. Great pattern instructions and drafting for collar, stand and cuffs.  
This is a sew along so while there will be fitting help, we will focus on collar, cuff and placket techniques to be sure the shirt is completed.

Skill Level: Intermediate
Fee: $70
Instructors: Material Girls Debbie & Kristin

Renaissance, Georgian, Regency, Civil War, Victorian, or whatever era you like. Go all out with handsewn historic accuracy, or just make a fun costume! We’ll cover fitting, research, and the best historical sewing techniques to create your vision.
