20+21/09/2018 - Sew the Cocoon cardigan jacket! Evening class! Pattern included in the class! Size 8 - 26 available to make!
Thursday 20th and Friday 21st of September, 6 - 9pm
2 in stock.
The Cocoon jacket is a real comfort coat. It hangs off the shoulders and bubbles out, coming in again just under you bum, concealing all and enveloping you in cosy cocoon of warmth – hence the name. This class is over 2 consecutive evenings.
Available to make in sizes UK 8 – 26
The Cocoon Jacket is such a simple shape and is very easy to put together, but the beauty of it is in the subtle details such as the oversize cuffs that just differentiate themselves with their contrasting texture and the notches around the neckline which stop it looking too boxy. The front panels are lined so you get flashes of the inside fabric too.
For this class, if you have an overlocker, you are welcome to bring it to finish the seams with it to achieve a more professional look. The overlocker must be pre-threaded.
Fabric suggestions: for the outer body medium to heavy weight wool, heavy cotton, denim, gaberdines, felts, heavy knits
For the lining: most medium weight fabrics are suitable. If you are using the contrast layout shown then keep your lining fabric a similar weight to the body fabric.
Materials you need to bring:
Tea and Coffee are always free during all classes.
This is an evening class so you can park in the courtyard, directly outside our sewing room in front of Unit 3 and Unit 7.
