Want to make a custom-fit wardrobe? Instead of using traditional patterns, the Improv Sewing team sews a wardrobe from a single set of pattern pieces made by tracing a well-fitting t-shirt. Sacrifice that favorite tee (the one with a little stain on it) for a closet full of favorite tops, tunics and dresses!

  • Use a t-shirt as a base for a pattern
  • Make tops, tunics and dresses

What you’ll get:
  • An easy-to-follow lesson on using a t-shirt to expand your wardrobe
  • 11 HD video lessons you can access online anytime, anywhere
  • Itemized supply list
  • Step-by-step instruction by the expert instructors of Improv Sewing
