Good news!! Due to the original workshop selling out so quickly I’ve decided to add a second date:
Sunday 4th February 10am-4pm
This class is ideal for beginners and and those with a bit of sewing experience. Don’t be scared of sewing knitted fabrics, we’ll be using a regular sewing machine and Wendy will guide you through setting up the machine to sew stretch fabrics – it’s a lot easier than you think.
The Kinder Cardigan is a simple kimono inspired open cardigan without any fastenings. It is easy to wear and easy and quick to sew. It will quickly earn its place in your wardrobe as one of your go-to pieces.
You can make the cardigan in three lengths; short, which just skims the hip bone and looks great with fitted skirts and wide leg trousers; mid-length, which comes to just below hip (and yes, covers your bum); or full length, which is just below knee length and looks great with more fitted styles such as skinny jeans or leggings. There is also a choice of short or long sleeves, both finished with a cuff, and for the two longer versions you can add roomy patch pockets.
NOTE: the patterns are in 10 sizes which cover the following body measurement range: bust 80-121cm (31 1/2 to 47 3/4 ins), waist 64-105cm (25 to 41 1/2 ins), hips 88-129cm (34 1/2 to 51 ins).
- SUNDAY 4th February | 10am – 4pm | £95
- Suitable for beginners and more experienced dressmakers.
- Class size limited to just 5 people.
- Includes a signed copy of “A Beginner’s Guide to Sewing With Knitted Fabrics” (which contains 20 projects and a comprehensive sewing with knits techniques section) to take home and make more).
Here’s me looking chilly in one of my many Kinder cardigans….!
