Sew your own 'Sculpural Bucket Coat' with Tree from Stitchless TV

Date: 4 February 2018 11:00 to 04 February 2016 17:00
Details:

 

 

Fabrications is very happy to welcome back Tree from Stitchless TV for one of her one of a kind  classes. Tree has a brilliant YouTube chanel teaching how to make all of kinds of stylish items that any level of sewer can make. Her philosophy is to take high end catwalk looks and show us in easy, no fuss steps how we can make our own versions in our front rooms!

Tree has recently branched out into creating patterns from her designs and tutorials - hot off the press is her brilliant 'Sculptural Bucket Coat'. During the class, Tree will guide you through cutting the pattern, piecing together on the machine and the finishing touches.. Here is her video tutorial for a sneak preview, but there is nothing better than spending time with Tree live and direct, and being able to ask lots of questions and get feedback on your sewing.

 

All levels of sewer are welcome but being able to thread up a machine / have used a machine before is advisable.

 

 

On completion of this class participants will confidently be able to:

- Work with a paper pattern, layout & cut out your cloth pieces.

- Assemble fabric panels on the machine

- The coat is not lined and we will be using an overlooker to finish the inside seams.

- Apply a bias binding to embelish and finish a raw edge (more experienced sewers)

- Create your own stylish unlined scultural coat


TIME: 11am - 5pm


COST: £90 (includes your own paper pattern worth £15)


YOU WILL NEED: Bring your choice of fabric for making your bucket coat - you can pretty much use anything for this design (except stretch fabric or anything too fragile/that frays easily) or choose from our selection of suitable fabrics.
