Make Your Own Fitted Jacket

Your very own fashion for every season!

11 Jan 2022-22 Mar 2022

Suitable for those with very little sewing experience, this course is a very affordable way to learn how to make and sew your own jackets, with perfectly fitting patterns, in our well equipped sewing room and surrounded by likeminded people. This ten-week afternoon course will teach you how:

  • to follow a sewing pattern;
  • to modify a sewing pattern to your measurements and design preferences;
  • to make and fit a mock up for a garment before making the real thing;
  • to select appropriate fabrics and notions for your design;
  • to cut and assemble a fitted jacket;
  • to apply professional finishing techniques.

As you will be working on your own project, please bring your choice of fabric, this being outer, lining, sewing thread, buttons, fasteners and trims. In order to minimise handling of equipment, you may also wish to bring your own basic sewing kit, like scissors, hand sewing needles, unpicker.
