Course Overview

It works! Sew your own Scandinavian work shirt, designed for comfort and for your favorite outdoor activities. Learn a lifelong skill while creating a shirt you will love to wear. Traditional shirts in Scandinavian countries are great for layering and are designed for outdoor life. Natural fiber striped fabrics of cotton, linen, and wool in many colors and textures can be used to make distinctive shirts. When made of traditional blue or red striped cotton, Scandinavians enjoy wearing these comfortable shirts to reflect their heritage. Sewing patterns and instructions are based on historical examples. Patterns are comprised of squares and rectangles. As you create your shirt, you will be guided step by step, adjusting your pattern, cutting, machine and hand sewing, and adding the finishing touches. Scandinavian work shirts are ideal for men, women, and children. The materials fee includes a reusable pattern and sewing supplies. After registration, the instructor will contact you to discuss fabric options, which cost an additional $25-$90, depending on personal preference.
