Venue: Home Studio Chorlton
A kimono is perfect for swanning around the house, covering up in the sun or channeling your inner bohemian at festivals.
You’ll learn how to finish the raw edges of your fabric using self made bias binding and to sew smooth seams and ripple-free hems. What’s more you’ll get a truly professional finish while learning to use one of our Janome overlockers. To complete the look you’ll make an optional tie to wear around your middle or even wear in your hair should your inner bohemian get its own way.
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).
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.
