Masterclass- The Venus Kimono



Masterclass Workshop

Saturday October 20th, 10am – 6pm

In a full day workshop Annie, the designer of the Venus Kimono will teach you how to make your very own Venus Kimono!

The pleats at the shoulder and curved hem give it a really modern look. It’s a relaxed fit and hangs over the body beautifully which makes it perfect as a cover up. Ideal in Spring or Autumn when the days get a little cooler and you just want something to cover up but look super stylish at the same time. A great pattern for a beginner sewer or advanced!

In this course you will learn how to sew pleats, french seams and rolled hems. Finish off with a champagne and a quick photo shoot for you to share and show off with your friends! Hashtag #amazing

*Don’t finish? Don’t Stress! You can pop into the studio to finish your project during a social class or drop in when the studio is free.
