Learn how to make beautiful indigo patterns and create a jacket with drop sleeve from your self dyed fabric!
The first lesson introduces you to different tye-dye techniques. This technique uses folding and tyeing up fabric to create beautiful Indigo patterns. After many experiments, you choose which samples you like the most and you apply those techniques on the cutted out pattern parts for your jacket.
The following lessons are about making the garment. First you assemble an outer layer and a lining seperately. Because every pattern piece of a jacket is rectangular, it’s easy to stitch them together. However, stitching the outside and the lining together is not as simple as it seems! Follow the given steps accurately and ask Rosa for help when you need it. In the end, you have produced your own 100% organic and self dyed drop-sleeve-jacket!
