Donny Shirt Sew-along Class

The Donny Shirt is a boxy pull-on top that is designed to be a workhorse in your wardrobe. It is a dartless top with a lapel collar and patch pocket. The Donny is a great everyday top that can be worn with practically anything. Because of its boxy silhouette, the Donny is comfortable but still cool. Pair it with jeans or a skirt, layer it over or under a dress - the sky’s the limit!

This class is suitable for a range of ability levels. You must know how to use a sewing machine. A little bit of garment construction knowledge would be helpful. 

This is a two-day class.
