This workshop is ideal for those already with some basic machine-sewing experience looking to start making their own clothes. You will learn how to prepare your fabric, pin and cut out simple pyjama pants (full length or cropped) 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. For those with further machine-sewing skills there's also a cute, short, cropped, frilled-hem version; learn to make gathers and frills.

In the afternoon creatively customise a vest top or t-shirt to co-ordinate by making your own appliqued design using your fabric remnants.
