3 hour workshop
This workshop is going to transform your life! In this three hour masterclass, you'll learn how to add pockets to your favourite items of clothing. Because as you know, pockets are essential!
Suzie will show you how to add in-seam side pockets to your favourite dress or skirt, and patch pockets to all your tops, dresses and skirts! Once you learn the techniques, you'll be able to add pockets to every item in your wardrobe.
At the end of the workshop, you will walk away with templates and instructions for both in-seam side pockets and patch pockets, and a spring in your step.

About your host, Suzie London
** Suzie will be on maternity leave from 14 December and unable to take any more workshop bookings until Summer 2019 **
Suzie London, founded by Dutch-Australian designer Suzie Kemner, creates 'Pieces of joy' – fabric, fashion & homeware channelling 50's, 60's & 70's style with a fresh, modern edge.
Suzie was born in a small village in South Holland. The family moved to to Perth, Australia when Suzie was nine. Growing up as a teenager in Australia, Suzie’s favourite past-time became trawling charity shops, searching for unique vintage finds. A gifted artist, Suzie studied Graphic Design and Multimedia at The West Australian School of Art & Design and graduated in 1999.
In 2000 Suzie moved to London 'for a year' and fell in love with the city. She studied an introductory course in Fashion Design at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design and later Professional Sewing Techniques at the London College of Fashion, all the while working as a freelance graphic designer.
A million short courses in pattern cutting, textile design and shoe making followed, including screen printing, block printing, digital printing and draping on the stand, and slowly the idea for Suzie London began to emerge. Suzie began creating designs and patterns inspired by 50s, 60s and 70s designs, digitally printing onto natural fabrics including silk, cotton and linen, to create beautiful pieces of joy.
Having lived more than 15 years in London, Suzie considers herself a true Londoner, and champions local British manufacturing. Suzie sources natural fabrics such as 100% Organic Cotton Panama for printing her designs onto, using eco friendly water-based inks.
Nothing makes Suzie happier than designing and making things, and she makes all the zip pouches, espadrilles, cushions and lampshades herself, in her North London studio.
Suzie London has just opened it's first ever shop, in the amazing Blue House Yard in Wood Green, North London, and runs sewing workshops in the main Blue House.
Please bring a dress or skirt you want to add in-seam side pockets to, and a top, dress or skirt you'd like to add a patch pocket too. All fabrics, tools and materials will be provided, but you may wish to bring small pieces of fabric to match your clothing! We recommend bringing a fat quarter (50cm x 50cm approx) of cotton or linen fabric.
Suitable for those with basic sewing skills. Age 16+
