garment workshop: rio ringer t-shirt

The Rio Ringer T-Shirt and Dress is the perfect garment for any level of sewist! Come take this one-day workshop and enhance your skills by using a pattern, working with knits and the simple construction to garment-making. 

The Rio has two views. View A is a semi fitted t-shirt with a crew neckline and short sleeves. The neckline and sleeves are all bound with ribbing for that nod to vintage. View B has the same look except it is lengthened into an easy to wear t-shirt dress. This pattern comes in three size ranges – 0-18 (C cup), 14-30 (D cup), and a kids range of 2T – 10 years old - so you can make it for just about anyone!
