Event description

Description

If you have attended the morning class ' Beginners Sewing' (zips, buttonholes & bindings) this session will put everything that you've learnt into practise and you will also leave with a stylish skirt, fitted to your body.

There is an upcycled option of creating a skirt from a man's shirt or you can bring your own fabric. We can also accomodate requestsd for making simple shorts during the class but please let us know in advance if you'd like to make shorts.

If you just want to attend the afternoon class only and inorder to realisticaly complete the garment in the allocated time frame, you will need to have basic sewing machine skills and have an understanding of how to sew seams and insert a zip. Barley will of course support you through the making process from measuring your body, using a pattern, cutting out pattern pieces, assembling and finishing.


On completion of the class, participants will confidently be able to:

- Take measurements of your body to adapt the pattern and ensure the garment will fit you properly

- Understand best way to use fabric or shirts economically and understand direction of the fabric grain

- Assemble flat fabric panels on the sewing machine to create a 3d form

- Create an elasticated waistband

- Add a zipped pocket

- Create buttonholed 'tabs' or belt loops

- Hem the bottom edge woth bias binding or a regular hem.



YOU WILL NEED:
2 x classic man's shirt (XL) OR 1.5 - 2m fabric of your choice depending on length you want.

* * We now sell beautiful fabrics suitable for this class at Fabrications* *


Please Note: The workshop will take place in the Fabrications studio (which is downstairs from the shop via 12 steps)
