This workshop is ideal for all skill levels from Beginners+ who have already learned to use a sewing machine and are looking for a first clothing project (ideally you'll have made our easy level pyjamas or similar). You will learn how to prepare your fabric, pin on paper patterns, cut out and sew this loose-fit style with it's gently elasticated waist and side seam pockets using an exclusive FASHIONSKOOL paper pattern provided in your chosen size. Pick up lots of great sewing tips whilst joining the pieces together using a sewing machine and finishing seams neatly.
Please refer to the sizing notes below to choose your size and state your requirement when booking so that a pattern can be prepared for you:
Children's Sizes: age 10-11, age 11-12. Teen's : 4, 6, 8, 10, 12.
SIZING: The difference between 'Teen' sizing and children's sizing is in the cut of the pattern; sizes are based on UK women's sizing but adapted for a slightly less 'curvy' figure. Styles have proportionate darts where appropriate, shaped waist and hips, and longer body, arm and leg lengths than for equivalent children's sizes. For example, the Teen's size 10 is most comparable to a women's dress size 10 and children's age 16 clothing size, further sizing advice given on request.
For this workshop you will need to provide 100% cotton woven fabric in a 2-way print; (for 1-way prints or fabrics with a pile such as corduroy, add 25 cm length). Works well in printed or plain poplin, chambray, lightweight denim, linen or medium-weight needlecord. Please avoid large repeats, obvious checks or horizontal stripes that will need matching, crinkles, crepes, knits, light or heavyweight fabrics and slippery polyester type fabrics.
