Holy pins and needles, Batman! Become your own sewing superhero and overcome the fear of working with that troublesome stretchy fabric. We'll give you tips and tricks for working with knitted fabrics (such as jersey, cotton knit or ponte roma).
You’ll construct a top, in your own choice of fabric (see 'Additional Information') with the sleeve and body cut as one, so no tricky set in sleeves to worry about. You’ll finish the top by adding cuff and hem panels.
You’ll conquer the complicated-looking but super useful
overlocker. This is a brilliant workshop to progress on to if you have
already attended our
Overlocking for Beginners workshop, and you’re raring to test out your newfound skills.
Quick Robin! To the Batwing-mobile!
This style is perfect for making on an overlocker if you want to make a day of it and attend Overlocking for Beginners before hand. Get a £10 DISCOUNT when you book on both using the code OVERLOCK.
As this is not a beginner’s workshop, you must already have some experience on a sewing machine or have attended one of our Beginner sewing workshops.
