Using the popular Dawson Coatigan pattern, which was designed and drafted by Claire-Louise herself, the coat features stylish fitting lines, pockets, darts and shaping and as it’s unlined you can complete it in our two day class.
The pattern is incredibly versatile and can be made in everything from wool blends, linens, stable ponte and double knits and can be worn throughout the year.
During the class you’ll learn how to measure yourself and adapt the pattern to fit you, making any changes to your pattern before cutting. You’ll learn how to work with outerwear fabrics and coat making techniques as well as lots of tips and tricks for a beautiful finish.
Our sewing classes are relaxed and friendly, taking place at our beautiful studio at Holme Grange Craft Village in Wokingham, Berkshire. Students get to use our brand new digital Janome sewing machines and class sizes are capped at 6 to ensure everyone gets the time and attention they need.
