Sew a Camp Shirt!

In this five-day workshop you will learn the basics of dart manipulation, transferring darts to different locations on a shirt and, if desired, change them to gathers, pleats, and more.

Starting with a very basic convertible collar pattern (camp shirt style) you’ll tissue fit, alter to your shape, execute your design changes, and sew it up with expert guidance and professional finishes.

The workshop includes our newest Palmer/Pletsch camp shirt pattern and lunches.

Amelia, from the UK, says: “I started dressmaking about two years ago. I am obsessed with fit, but have never got it quite right until I bought the Palmer/Pletsch Complete Guide to Fitting. Wow! Your book has transformed my sewing and made me understand about fit and how to achieve it. I’m telling all my sewing buddies about it! What a difference this has made—although I now seem to be even more picky! I now realize how awful the fit is with all my ready-to-wear clothes!”
