Pyjama Trousers Workshop
January 13 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm£52
This is the perfect course for those who wish to learn to make their own pyjama trousers using the Tilly and the Buttons “Jaime” pyjama trousers pattern. The Workshop is best suited for those who have used a sewing machine before or completed the Beginners Introduction to Sewing Course.
This is fantastic course for those wanting an introduction into making clothing as your will learn how to read and interpret a pattern and learn simple garment construction techniques.
At the end of the workshop you will have one complete pair of adult pyjamas trousers.
You will receive your own Tilly and the Buttons “Jaime” pattern which is included in the class fee and yours to keep.
During the workshop you will learn step by step how to lay, pin, cut and assemble your pyjama trousers.
We will break about half way through the session 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 cake to keep us going!
This workshop is made up of one, 3 hour session.
You will need to bring your own fabric for the pyjama trousers.
If the fabric is 150cm wide; you will need 2.10m.
If the fabric is 115cm wide; you will need 2.5m.
Cotton, viscose, cotton lawn, cotton gauze, brushed cotton, viscose twill, silky satin are all suitable options
Below are some suggested fabrics that will make your pyjama trousers comfortable to wear depending on the time of year.
Suggested fabrics for Autumn/Winter: brushed cotton, flannelette.
Suggested fabric for Spring/Summer: 100% cotton, cotton lawn or viscose, silky satin.
IMPORTANT TIP: Pre-wash and and iron your fabric prior to the class as these fabrics will shrink on the first wash!! If you intend to tumble dry your pyjamas then be sure to tumble dry the fabric too, to maximise any further shrinkage prior to cutting and sewing your pyjamas.
