Tailored Shirt Sew Along! Let's Get Started!
Today is the first day of my Tailored Shirt Sew-Along! This week is the easy part - we're just going to be watching the Craftsy lessons and planning out our projects. Be sure to click the banner above for the post with discount codes.
Also this week, you'll need to gather all of your supplies. In addition to the discount codes I listed, the Craftsy class has a "Materials" section with discount codes.
I have broken down the class into 1-1 1/2 hour chunks to watch this week. I've rounded the times to the nearest 5 minutes, but you can see approximately how much time you'll need to set aside each day to complete the course by the end of the week. Feel free to watch at your own pace, but this is the schedule I'll be sticking to this week and we will discuss in the Craft & Sew Community.
