7 hour workshop
We are so excited to offer our first swimwear class with Sewing Bee champ and swimwear-sewing expert Charlotte Newland! In this class we'll be sewing the new Megan Nielsen Cottesloe swimsuit, a classic one-piece or mix and match bikini set suitable for sizes 0-30. Working with the pattern variation of your choice, you'll learn how to cut and sew stretch fabrics, work with swimwear elastic, finish seams and make simple fitting adjustments. Get ready for summer in this fun one-day class!

About your host, The Village Haberdashery
The Village Haberdashery provides sewing and craft classes with a modern spin from their shop and studio in West Hampstead, London. They offer a range of fun and varied courses for students of all levels of experience. From dressmaking to quilting, weaving to macrame, calligraphy to paper crafts, and a host of many other creative classes, The Village Haberdashery is bound to have a workshop for you!
Skills needed: This class is suitable for advanced beginners. You should already know how to sew and have completed a few dressmaking projects. Materials: The Cottesloe pattern is provided. If your measurements fall into the Cottesloe Curve size range (14-30) we will send you the PDF to print and tape up before class (or we can print it here and you can tape it up in the shop before class). Swimwear elastic for all variations will be provided. You'll need to bring or buy the fabric and optional lining and/or power mesh and thread for your preferred variation. Please see the size charts for fabric requirements. We will not be inserting the optional cups in this class. Please note that The Village Haberdashery does not sell swimwear fabric.
