DATE: Sunday 26 March 2017

WHO IS IT FOR?
If you want to start making your own clothes, this workshop offers the perfect introduction with an easy-peasy pyjama bottoms project using the Margot sewing pattern. You’ll need to be able to use a sewing machine first – this is a great follow on class from our Make Friends With a Sewing Machine workshop, which you can either take at our London studio or online from home.
WHAT WILL I LEARN?
- How to start using sewing patterns and read their markings
- Techniques for cutting out fabric accurately
- The basics of clothing construction – including pinning, stitching seams and pressing
- How to sew pyjama bottoms, including drawstring and hem
"I loved the workshop. The teacher is extremely helpful and accommodates every query in an approachable, helpful manner." - a happy student
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING ALONG?
- 2.5m of light- to medium-weight cotton fabric, eg. lawn, shirting, double gauze or quilting cotton (take a look at the right-hand column of the blog for a list of lovely fabric shops)
We’ll provide thread, tools and a sewing machine for you to use on the day. You’ll also get a goodie bag to take away with you, including a signed copy of Tilly’s book, Love at First Stitch. At the end of the class we’ll celebrate your pyjama-making prowess with a drink!
Please note: It’s a good idea to wash, dry and iron the fabric before the workshop in case it shrinks. The pyjama pattern goes up to 120cm (47in) hips – if you need a larger size please let us know before booking.
