In this two-hour bitesized workshop you will learn how to make a beautiful, draped kimono jacket. Choose from two different styles, batwing kimono (more draped) or a box sleeve kimono! Please note, you will need to purchase materials before attending this class.
What do I need to bring?
Please bring along 1.5 metres (150cm wide X 150cm long) of a fabric of your choice - go as bright or patterned as you like!
If you are an inexperienced dressmaker, do not choose silky, soft fabrics, as you will find these difficult to sew. Ideal fabrics include cottons, light wools…
Don't forget your funky fabrics! Please note, fabric must be 140cm - 150cm wide, or the pattern will not fit on the fabric, so bring the right size to avoid disappointment!
