Over sized T-Sweatshirt
Sweatshirts are a wardrobe essential all year round and FASHIONSKOOL's latest offering salutes the current trend for over-sized silhouettes. This version is a loose, mid-thigh length, sized-up t-shirt shape with short sleeves, front patch pocket, ribbed boat-neck, extended back hem and side seam vents. Make yours in ultra cosy brushed-back sweat shirting fabric (provided for you) in a choice of colours and wear it on it's own as a loose mini-dress cover-up or over a long-sleeved roll neck top and jeans on cooler days.
This project is suited to those who are already confident and regular users of a sewing machine, ideally having made several 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 make and finish seams neatly (with an opportunity to learn to use an over locker), attach ribbing and stitch the perfect patch pocket.
Choose from the following colours: LT GREY MARL, WHITE, KHAKI GREEN or BLACK for the main body (rib colours can be chosen on the day of the workshop) and sizes: SMALL (approx age 10-11), MEDIUM (teen's size 4-6), LARGE (teen's size 8-10) and X-LARGE (teen's /women's size 12-14). Please state your requirement when booking so that your pattern can be prepared for you. Should you prefer to supply your own fabrics (see below) please request requirements and suppliers when booking.
All equipment, threads, 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 bring a packed lunch and your slippers.
