Hi everyone! I’m Sienna the content producer here at Seamwork. Each month in the Seamwork Classroom, we have a new sewalong class that walks you through each step to sew a new Seamwork pattern. This month, we’re sewing up the Marlow top. Let’s take a look at this pattern and talk about all the cool skills you’ll pick up when you’re done with this class.
The Marlow shirt is a relaxed fit button up. If features cut on sleeves with a fun cuff, a v-neckline, bust darts for a bit of shaping, a faced neckline, a split stepped hem with a facing, and buttons down the center front.
In this class, we’ll sew each step including the tricky parts like the facing on the neckline and split hem, the sleeve cuffs, and bust darts.
The best thing about this class is you’re not in it alone! You can connect with other sewists in the Seamwork community and chat about choosing fabric, selecting a size, and sewing up your Marlow top. It’s a great place to ask questions and cheer each other on!
In lesson 2, I’m going to pass things over to Haley who designed the patterns. She’ll talk about what fabrics will work well for Marlow and she’ll share the fabrics she chose for the photo samples.
Let’s get started!
