Garment 302 - Button Down Shirt


A button-down shirt is a classic for a reason. Easy to dress up or down, there are very few occasions when wearing one wouldn’t be appropriate. Even better is when it perfectly fits your body instead of being “close enough.” Always rolling up your sleeves because they’re too short? We’ll make them longer. Buttons gape over the bust? You will learn how to avoid that by changing the button placement. We will go over all the tricky details that can seem intimidating in shirt making such as collars and collar stands, sleeve and button plackets, plus how to have a beautifully finished yoke inside and out. In class we will discuss how to best use striped and plaid fabrics, however we will go easy on ourselves for our first shirts and avoid these patterns and the corresponding level of difficulty.


You should have previous machine sewing experience and have completed several garment projects. You should be comfortable taking your measurements and using those to read the back of the pattern to determine the necessary supply amounts. Please email if you are unsure if your skill level is appropriate.

Instructor: Erin Hubner
Instructor Bio: Erin learned to sew as a kid and was always crafty but didn't really get fully into sewing until after college. After making a few rather involved Halloween costumes she realized she could make clothes to wear every day, not just at the end of October. Eventually this led to her going back to school for fashion design and construction and teaching classes for over 6 years. Her main focus may be garment sewing, but she has also worked on accessories, home decor and quilting. Basically, if it involves fabric, thread, yarn, or other similar craft supplies she probably does it on a semi regular basis. Except projects involving hot glue, she does try to stay away from those.
