Shirtmaking with Johanne Brousseau - in Brampton June 17 & 18

I was delighted with the number of people who attended my fashion / trunk show on Shirts, etc. at the Spring Creativ Festival last weekend. And I was also pleased with the positive feedback I received.Now you have the opportunity to learn how to do it first hand.

Johanne Brousseau is an experienced and delightful teacher who is also a Certified Islander Sewing Systems Instructor and she will be teaching Shirtmaking at the Brampton Sew n Serge on June 17 & June 18, 2011.

Shirtmaking is a fabulous skill to have and once you are comfortable, you can easily sew a tailored shirt in a day. The bonus is that the skills you develop while making a very handsome shirt will happily translate to greater success in all of your sewing projects. The industrial shortcuts you will learn in this course include fine topstitching, lined back yoke with no handstitching, attach a sleeve with no gathering or pinning, and attach a professional looking collar band, collar, plackets and cuffs! Once you know the secrets you will never shy away from sewing shirts and blouses.

  1. Hello, Catherine.

    Great seeing you at the Show. I took a half-day course with Johanne at Creativ (Sewing Knits) and would like to take more classes with her. Are you thinking of bringing her back sometime next year?
