About this Event

This 3.5hrs workshop focuses on the design and making of a garment.

This is ideal for beginners and proficient sewing levels.

You will learn how to make a pattern using measurements and sew a multiway garment in jersey fabric.

This can be sewn by hand or with a sewing machine.

Why wrap pants?

This design can be worn as pants, but also as a jumpsuit, dress or cape. The options to wear are endless and make it a great beginner's sewing design.

The pattern cutting and dressmaking techniques used in this session can be applied to other garments.

The end result will be your very own multiway wrap pants.

Sew in a small intimate group of max 6 people, and get peer support and expert guidance.

You will gain confidence in:

  • Taking measurements
  • Draft basic patterns
  • Sew in jersey fabric
