The coat, not a piece you would maybe normally chose to make during the normal sewing lessons, because it can take some time. This course gives you the opportunity to take this time and of course give you the guidance. Also, with this workshop, it is possible to make the coat of your own wishes. We start with a base pattern that fits best to your idea and you can decide yourself upon the details of the coat (what kind of pockets, collar and closure you’d like). It will give you inside in adjusting patterns to your wishes and have a closer look at the fit of the coat (fitted to your body type).
Learn all elements to create your own coat. Learn to adjust the pattern to your wishes. Learn to sew the pockets, closure (zipper or buttons) and collar. Learn to work with wool and lining.
What we provide:
> 8 weeks (3h per week) of professional guidance throughout the process, step by step guidance for all the details of your coat by fashion designer and pattern drafting pro Ayla van Maarschalkerweerd.
> (Basic) pattern for your coat in your size.
> Coffee, tea and cookies during workshops.
