Course Description

You'll love this casual, and extremely easy-to-sew Go Everywhere Shirt by Glenda the Good Stitch and Sure-Fit Designs. It is drawn and designed from the Uni-sex Shirt Kit.

We begin with taking accurate measurements. Then the process of drawing your personalized body blueprint for your shirt pattern begins. You'll see exactly where to draw the design changes to accomplish this comfortable shirt.

The collar? Couldn't be easier. The collar seam allowance acts as a facing to tuck in the neck seam. The shirt front is finished with a cut-on turn-back facing. All easy for you to see and follow along in this video sew along.

Additionally, you'll receive downloadable PDF instructions that you can read to follow along with the video lessons. I know you'll enjoy designing, sewing and wearing this casual well-fitting shirt.

I can't wait until I get my sewing room set up and lose the weight to make this darling shirt. It is exactly the pattern I have been looking for to endure the Florida heat and humidity. The course is easy to watch, Glenda is pleasant to listen to and I can just hear the enthusiasm and excitement in her voice. I have researched many sewing programs and this is by far the best quality and well thought out sewing system on the market.

Glenda's instructions were easy to follow both in the design from the basic body blueprint through to the sewing instructions. I particularly like the design of the notched sleeve and the associated sewing instructions. I have two commercial patterns that offer a similar finished look to the sleeve, but that are far more complicated to achieve. I have now made two Go Everywhere Shirts - a 3/4 sleeve with a curved hem as per the sew along and a flounced sleeve with a straight hem. I love them both, they are comfortable to wear, fit like a dream and I find them relatively quick to sew up. I have more planned with variations to sleeves and hems. Thanks Glenda!

With this video and the instructions that accompany the pattern, I believe anyone could make this shirt. I have been sewing for 48 years and I even learned several things that in the years of experience I never learned before seeing Glenda make the Go Everywhere shirt. Great job, Glenda. This video would give lots of confidence to young beginners who have never made a shirt with a collar or perhaps put in buttonholes and buttons. If I may also say that I find this method of shirt making so much easier than the Wild Ginger Software, Patternmaster Boutique that I have used for over a decade. The measurements for the Sure-Fit Designs patterns are many less steps. Plus, I always had to adjust something even after printing out many pieces of paper to form into pattern pieces, and gluing them together over a light box. This method is faster if you take all things into consideration. So, I am very happy to have discovered Sure-Fit Designs!

I thought that the instructions were clear, the pictures were excellent, the instructions for making the garment put into a logical order, and the hints and tips so very helpful. What it helped to remind me was, how accurate one must be when measuring and drawing out the pattern pieces; it truly does make the 'making up' process so much easier! I cannot thank you enough for giving me back the enjoyment of pattern design and sewing again. Thank you Gill Scarisbrick
