This course will involve making a pair of cotton pyjama bottoms for either a man, woman or child. You will learn to accurately measure and size the garment, cut a pattern, follow the instructions included in sewing pattern envelopes and how to adjust your pattern for a perfect fit.
Bring your sewing machine if you have one, although you are welcome to borrow mine, and also bring your lunch/dinner. Please note I do not have microwave facilities. Tea, coffee, biscuits and enthusiasm will flow freely though!
Only 2 spaces are available per session to ensure that everyone gets the attention they need and comes away happy that they can continue to sew independently.
Courses are run in the town of Westerham, Kent, which is easily accessed by road and public transport. Please get in contact if you need further help in getting to us.
If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
