Overlocking Skills + Sew a Tee with Ali

From: £110.00

Overlockers are bloody genius, and are nothing to be afraid of!

This is a 1 day workshop, where you will learn how to get a professional finish on all of your handmade your garments using an Overlocker!

Overlockers are commonly used to finish seams in a tidy manner so they don’t fray after washing which makes them sit better and last longer. You can use the overlocker for other techniques that can be used effectively to sew stretch garments like t shirts, swimwear, underwear and jazzy festival sets or sportswear.

We will cover 

– How to thread your overlocker correctly – one per person
– Experiment with trouble shooting and tension
– Create samples with a variety of fabrics
– Finish delicate and drapey fabrics with narrow and rolled hems
– In the afternoon, start sewing a T shirt of your choosing!

MT will provide

  • One Overlocker per person,
  • All threads and materials for samples
  • expert tuition and guidance, tea and coffee x

You will need to bring

  • A T shirt pattern of your choosing – here is s good list , but we love this one!
  • Please bring printed instructions or have them accessible on your phone.
  • Enough cotton stretch fabric for your t shirt (prewashed and precut if possible) – If you are a MT Member you can cut your fabric in the studio for free!

This is a great class for absolute beginners that want to understand the overlocker, to produce high quality garments who are perhaps a bit scared of them and their power and finesse!

Fear no more – its gonna be a smooth ride!
