Have you always wanted to sew for your daughter or granddaughter? Do you love to smock and would like to include it in your designs, but the child in your life needs simple everyday clothes? May Garden is a simple pull on and go jumper made of an easy care knit.  Sized to be worn sleeveless or with a simple tee or turtleneck underneath.  This course will walk you through every aspect of the construction process. The bonus material includes the design that was featured in the Spring 2020 issue of Classic Sewing Magazine.
