tunic class at Home Ec

i am teaching another intermediate sewing class beginning this thursday 10/4, this time at Home Ec, using the Built by You pattern #3964, which can be a top, tunic or dress (depending on the length you choose) with either wing sleeves (as in all the pics here), or 3/4-length sleeves which you can see in some of these pics. above are some of the ones my students made the last time i taught this project (thanks amylou, laura and rani for sending photos!). i am excited to make some new ones for fall with the sleeves...

Intermediate Sewing: Sew Your Own Tunic/Tunic Dress with Cal Patch

Take your sewing skills to the next level with this project: a shirred diamond-yoke dress, tunic or top from
the Simplicity/Built by Wendy collection (#3964). You'll learn about gathering, french seams, facings, bias
bindings, and more. Three different lengths and two sleeve versions give you so many options, you'll want
to make a dozen of them! Preregistration required.

6:30-8:30pm on October 4, 11, 18 and 25; $240
Call 718-783-0364 to register, or you can also e-mail with your phone # and
we'll call you to take your payment securely by phone.

Supplies needed:
Built by You/Simplicity pattern #3964 which can be purchased online here or at your nearest Built by Wendy store.
1.5-3.5 yards fabric (yardage requirement is on back of pattern package; depends on desired length/style)
thread to match
elastic (optional, depending on style)
