Originally released alongside the Marie Shirt Sewing Society Kit in June 2022, these videos contains Lauren's exclusive hints and tips for making your very own Marie Shirt!

This series of 2 videos is perfect if you already own a copy of the By Hand London Marie Shirt sewing pattern and the supplies to make it but would like some helpful guidance on sewing it up!

These videos doesn't replace the instructions that come with the pattern, instead Lauren shares her personal hints and tips that she finds useful to help you make a lovely garment.

The videos have over 65 minutes of footage, sectioned out with time stamps/chapters for easy reference and navigation.

The key construction steps are covered, including sewing neat and even pin tucks in slippery viscose fabric, sewing French seams, sewing different collar variations and adapting the size/height of ruffles, sewing gathers, marking optimal button hole placement and much more. Lauren will also how to cover adapting the collar pattern piece to round out the corner and add a ruffle, which is an extra design feature not included in the pattern.

Once you have placed your order, the video link will be included in your order confirmation email. The Marie Shirt PDF pattern is available directly from the By Hand London website and you can make use of our pattern printing service to have it printed on A0 paper (see below).
