Make Your Own Comfy Sweatshirt – Tilly and the Buttons BILLY SWEAT SHIRT Pattern
February 7 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm£120
This comfy sweatshirt is a brilliant course to do if you are wanting to start learning to sew with stretch fabrics. You will also get to use the over locker, (or if you prefer – learn how to use the overlooking function on your sewing machine) while making a sweatshirt that fits perfectly and is super cosy and comfy for those fresh and chilly days.
On this course you will learn to create your own sweatshirt using the Tilly and the Buttons – Billy pattern. You can choose to either make the sweatshirt or the Sweatshirt tunic length dress as the pattern has various options. You will learn how to make minor adjustments to your pattern so that the sweatshirt and pattern offer you the perfect fit! Your pattern is included in the course fee so you will also get to keep your pattern so that you can make more sweatshirts for months and years to come.
We will break about half way through each sessions for refreshments, as sewing is thirsty work for mind and body therefore it’s only natural that there will be plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits/cake to keep us going!
This course is made up of two, 3 hour sessions on 7th Feb & 9th Feb.
