There are signs of Spring in the air so it must be time to think about what to make, buy or up-cycle to refresh your wardrobe for the coming season.

To give you a kick-start why not join us for the next in our popular STYLE SESSIONS. This one's called STEP, STRIDE and SKIP into Spring/Summer 2022 and will be once again held in collaboration with Fiona Ingham personal stylist from House of Colour. Plus there will be a special 15% discount treat from The Fold Line to get you started on creating your Spring/Summer wardrobe.

The Style Sessions are all about how to get to know your own personal style and enjoy the confidence and feel good factor that comes from this. This isn't about rules and regulations but about exploring and developing your own unique look so you can be confident that the clothes you sew (and/or buy) will be the ones you always reach for and love to wear again and again.

Bright and bold, soft and floaty, crisp and smart, easygoing and natural - it's all about finding what works best for your look and personality and then finding/making the clothes to fit your lifestyle. You will never again look in the wardrobe and see nothing to wear or spend your precious time and money sewing clothes that you're not entirely happy with.

We will be having a good old rifle through this year's Spring/ Summer fashion collections and identifying which looks work well for different body types and personalities.

We've teamed up with The Fold Line who have a huge collection of sewing patterns so you can create your own on trend designs. As a special treat there will be a 15% discount until the end of April for all attendees.

The class will be hosted by design and style experts Alice (Alice & Co) and Fiona (House of Colour) who guarantee a fun and enlightening session.

The class will cover:

  • current trends and how to make them work for you
  • picking silhouettes, colours, textures, prints, details and trimmings
  • using accessories to style up what you've already got
  • putting an outfit together

Think of it like your favourite fashion magazine come to life where you can ask questions and it will talk back with answers!

1x Instructions pour le patron

3x Patrons dans les formats A0, A4 et US Letter  

*Lisez attentivement les instructions qui suivent avant d’imprimer votre patron !*

POUR LES FORMATS A4 / US LETTER : il est indispensable d’imprimer votre patron à 100%, sinon la taille ne sera pas correcte. Vos paramètres d'impression doivent être "pleine échelle" "100%", "taille réelle" ou un paramètre équivalent selon votre logiciel d'impression.

Il y a deux carrés de test sur la première page de chaque patron : un carré de 5 cm et un carré de 2 pouces. N'imprimez d'abord que cette page et vérifiez que votre carré est bien à la bonne taille, avant d'imprimer le reste du patron.

POUR LE FORMAT A0 : suivez les instructions données par votre imprimeur. Des services sont également disponibles en ligne.
