Join Kimberly of Straight Stitch Designs in making the polished, yet casual Leschi blouse. Leschi features a deep v-neck collar, 3/4 length sleeves, and a hi-lo hem. Kimberly will walk you through the entire project, from tracing to finishing, with a focus on fitting.
Leschi comes in a size range of 0 - 24. Leschi looks different in every fabric so experiment. Sew your Leschi in rayon for a flowy relaxed top or use linen for a more structured oversized look. Leschi looks just as great paired with skinny jeans and boots as it does with boyfriend jeans and flats. I even love pairing mine with my flare jeans and clogs for the ultimate boho look. Have fun with this pattern both in the fabrics you choose and the way you style it.
Please note: There are NO refunds or store credit given at any time for classes with out of town instructors and special guest instructors. Your seat may be transferred to a friend if you cannot attend.
