Learn to sew a complete menswear outfit with our Menswear Capsule Workshop. You'll learn how to make 3 high quality garments to create an outfit that will stand the test of time. Our workshops were originally filmed for the women's versions of these patterns but the making process is identical. You'll learn many skills to take forward with your sewing to continue creating elevated, quality garments with professional finishing techniques.

This series will take you through the process of making 3 garments using professional sewing techniques.
