Shirt making

Shirt making course - Jane White Couture Tuition

Our shirt making course will help you achieve the perfectly stitched shirt with a crisp collar and cuff detail

The shirt making course will cover:

  • The difference between a shirt and a blouse
  • Choosing the right fabric
  • Interfacing is king – discover a range you may not have used before
  • Saddle or yoke and what’s the Burrito method
  • Machine setting for perfect stitching
  • Seams – sample different types including French and fell
  • Wrist placket and continuous strip openings
  • How to apply the collar and cuffs
  • Buttonholes
  • How to sew on a button the couture way
  • Hemming
  • And a lot more top tips and techniques along the way

We have changed the format of our Sew Short Course programme in 2023 to make it more flexible for you. Instead of specific course dates you can now book any of the courses as a Sew Personal session or a shared Sewing Bee workshop. The session is limited to one or two sewers giving you lots of tutor time.

I wouldn’t have tackled making a shirt without your guidance. I found your handouts invaluable and it’s really nice to work alongside you and the other ladies.
