Description: The Camber Set from Merchant & Mills gives you the option of sewing a classic shift top or tunic. Without any fastenings to worry about, you can focus on getting to grips with using a dressmaking pattern, selecting your size, sewing darts, adding a bias trim, sewing a yoke and setting in sleeves.
You can choose to make either the top or the tunic based on your preference. The Camber Set is a multi-sized pattern available in UK sizes 8-18. If you are out with this size range please get in touch before booking as we should be able to adjust the pattern for you.
Skill level: You should have already made a couple of simple dressmaking projects. Depending on your experience you may have to finish your garment at home.
Requirements: You’ll need the following fabric and coordinating thread. Suitable fabrics: cotton, linens, linen-look cotton, light weight denim and chambray. You’ll receive 10% off any supplies bought in the shop.
