Sewing with Stretch Tues 29th June & 6th July 1.30pm-3.30pm
Stretch fabrics require different techniques and tools to woven fabrics. In this one day workshop, you'll get loads of tips on how to master the stretch whilst making the classic Billie Sweatshirt from Tilly and the Buttons.
We'll teach you how to avoid over stretch; using techniques to create neckbands and cuffs. You'll learn about different stretch fabrics and how to choose the right one for different types of clothing.
Once you've mastered the basics, you'll be off and running with the ability to apply your learning across t-shirts, leggings, skirts and dresses.
The pattern is included in the price of the course, but the fabric and notions are not.
The Billie pattern has lots of variations including puff sleeves, different lengths and pockets. As this will be your first garment in stretch we will be making the basic hip length sweatshirt without pockets.
