This workshop is ideal for those already with some basic machine-sewing experience looking to start making their own clothes. If you've already made yourself a pair, you might like to make a second pair as a gift for a parent, grandparent, sibling or friend - lots of extra sizes have just been added!


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


For this project you will need to provide 100% woven cotton fabric (length requirements given on booking) plus 1 cotton jersey vest or t-shirt. 


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

Children's sizes: Age 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14, 14-15.

Women's sizes: 8, 10, 12, 14 and 16.

Men's (waist) sizes: 32", 34", 36" and 38".
