What you will do
2.5 hour workshop
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 and brocades.
It is important that your fabric is no shorter than 140cm in WIDTH, or the kimono pattern will not fit onto your fabric.
Do I need to provide a size?
No, this pattern is a "one size fits all". As this is only a 2 hour session, no alterations / amendments can be made to the pattern.
PLEASE NOTE: If you forget to bring along your fabric, we have 2 metre packs of fabric that can be purchased for £12
Unfortunately we can not reschedule your workshop if you arrive without the fabrics for the workshop.
