Super quick to make, a Kimono style jacket is a perfect garment for summer layering or a swish night out.

You’ll learn how to sew smooth seams and ripple-free hems and finish the raw edges of your jacket using self made bias binding.

What’s more you’ll get a truly professional finish while learning to use one of our Janome overlockers.

A light to medium weight woven cotton fabric such as lawn, is ideal for a good drape. If you want the challenge of a slippery fabric such as crepe, viscose or satin, please let us know as we may need to allocate more time (see 'Additional Information' for fabric quantity to bring).

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.

Based at Bamber Sewing Machines, Ministry of Craft customers get 10% discount on the wide range of fabrics, haberdashery and sewing patterns and there are various discounts available on their sewing machines and overlockers.

If the above date is not suitable or sold out and there are no alternative dates showing below, contact us with the workshop name, so we can let you know if a place becomes available or when the next date goes on sale.

If you order fabric from our online fabric shop, it will be waiting for you in the classroom on the day of the workshop or you can buy on the day from Bamber Sewing Machines range of fabrics and get 10% discount.

You will need 2m of either 150cm or 115cm wide fabric, please note, the sleeve length may be slightly shorter on narrower width fabrics.

Matching sewing thread.

Contact us before the course if your hip measurement is larger than 132cm so we can ensure there is a pattern block made in your size and so we can advise how much fabric to bring.

This workshop is part of a Sew Social day, there may be a short wait if the tutor needs to demonstrate a technique required for a different garment. It is, however, a great opportunity to pick up additional skills and chat about what others are doing.

Our sponsors, Janome, supply computerised sewing machines (230DC) and where required overlockers (6234XL). Unfortunately, it is not possible to bring in your own machines.

Tea and coffee will be available at the workshop and there will be a break to eat, so please bring along some lunch or you can pop out to Asda located opposite.
