Sporty hooded sweatshirts remain a big fashion trend this season as well as being an all-year round wardrobe essential and FASHIONSKOOL has it's own exclusive semi-fitted, girl-shaped version. Sew yours in ultra-cosy brushed-back knitted sweat-shirting fabric in a choice of colours. This project is suited to those who are already confident and regular users of a sewing machine, ideally having made several of our clothing projects previously and are looking to further develop their sewing skills.


You will learn how to prepare, pin and cut knitted fabrics, using an exclusive FASHIONSKOOL paper pattern in your chosen size, how to finish seams neatly (with an opportunity to learn to use an over locker), make and attach cuffs and hems in rib fabric and add either a self-fabric applique of your own design or front 'kangaroo-style' pocket. 


Choose from the following colours: WHITE, LT GREY MARL OATMEAL or BLACK for the main body (rib colours can be chosen on the day of the workshop) and sizes: S/age 10-11, M/teen's size 4-6, L/teen's size 8-10 and XL/women's size 12. Please state your requirement when booking so that your pattern can be prepared for you.


All equipment, threads, elastic and light refreshments are provided. Feel free to bring your own sewing machine if you are lucky enough to have one; please ensure it's in good working order and you are able to thread it yourself. Please also bring a packed lunch and slippers/ indoor soft shoes.
