Sewing With Silks

The Liberty Shirt

with Linda Lee
Gain silk-sewing confidence and a gorgeous garment as you stitch along with Linda Lee and her Sewing Workshop pattern, included with the class.

Renowned designer and sewing instructor Linda Lee guides you through the construction of the classic and luxurious Liberty Shirt (pattern included!) and gives you invaluable tips for working with these exquisite fabrics. Silk's graceful drape and lustrous sheen make it a natural choice for creating beautiful clothing, but its cost and delicate nature can be intimidating. In this Craftsy class, Linda demystifies silk's many varieties and shares a wealth of techniques for preparing, sewing and finishing the show-stopping Liberty Shirt.

"Linda's way of explaining the different methods of construction is one of the very best of any of the classes I have taken on the Craftsy platform. The camera work is excellent. (...) I have never worked with silk and have five pieces in my closet. Linda has given me the courage to try. I have enrolled in her knit class and will take any classes Linda teaches. I would give this class a ten star. It is great to be able to view the class at any time you wish."
