PROJECT:
During this two day class you will construct a classic bomber jacket with lining, ribbing, zip front and welt pockets. We've tried and tested lots of bomber jacket patterns and in the class we will be using our own pattern (not available anywhere else!). This workshop is sponsored by Sew Me Sunshine and you'll be able to pick some fabric from their online store to sew your bomber - this fabric is included in the class price!

+ Using a paper pattern

+ How to insert a lining into a jacket

+ Attaching an open-ended zipper

+ How to sew fully enclosed ribbing

+ How to sew a welt pocket

+ Basic pattern adjustments

+ 2m of fabric from Sew Me Sunshine
+ Drinks and snacks throughout the class

STUDENTS WILL NEED TO BRING:

+ 2m of lining fabric 

+ 0.5m of ribbing
