This favourite workshop is ideal for those already with some basic machine-sewing knowledge* looking to start making their own clothes. 


You will learn how to prepare your fabric, pin and cut out simple pyjama pants (full-length) using an exclusive FASHIONSKOOL paper pattern provided in your chosen size, join the pieces together using a sewing machine, turn hems, make a waist casing and insert elastic. In the afternoon creatively customise a vest top or t-shirt to co-ordinate by making your own appliqued design using your fabric remnants. 

Choose from the following sizes and state your requirement when booking so that a pattern can be prepared for you: 

Child sizes: Age  5-6, 6-7, 7-8, 8-9, 9-10, 10-11, 11-12, 12-13, 13-14, 14-15 and 15-16 years.

For this project you will need to provide medium-weight 100% woven cotton fabric plus 1 cotton jersey vest or t-shirt:

Fabric width: 114cm: for sizes up to age 13 = 2m, for sizes above age 13 = 2.30m


Fabric width 150 cm: for sizes up to age 13 = 1m, for child sizes above age 13 = 2.30m

Equipment, basic haberdashery and light refreshments are included but please bring a packed lunch, water bottle and snacks, and slippers/ grippy socks to wear. 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 up by yourself).
