The bomber jacket is an outerwear classic everyone can wear and enjoy. Originally designed to keep pilots warm in open air cockpits, they can be made in a wide spectrum of materials making them suitable for all seasons. Fabric choice will determine if the look is more utilitarian, glam, or sporty. Varsity jackets are variations of bombers with colorful details such as contrast sleeves, large patches, and embroidery. All these options give you the opportunity to create a personalized garment.
The Saltwater Slip is a simple slip dress with adjustable straps that can be layered or worn on its own. The pattern comes with two length options: above the knee, and tea length (with side slits). It also comes with optional side ties to add a bit of waist shaping. Wear this slip over a tee shirt, under a sheer dress, or on its own!

Everyone needs a basic tee in their wardrobe and there?s nothing better when you?ve made it yourself to fit exactly how you like it.

We will go over how to make a t-shirt on the sewing machine, learning how to read and follow a pattern along the way.
