Learn to Sew with stretch – A classic ballet style wrap



Saturday Workshop

August 27th,  12-5pm.

Learn to sew this gorgeous wrap using knit fabric in either a light drapey knit for between seasons or cosey merino jersey for winter.

The Coppélia Cardi is a classic ballet style wrap cardi by Papercut Patterns. With two variations available, you can learn to sew the full lenth with wrap attached as a faux warp or a cropped lenth with tie to wrap around into a bow.

No need to use an overlocker as stretch fabric doesn’t fray so you can sew this on a regular machine, but if you would like to have a go at using the overlocker, go for it!

Suitable for confident beginners- intermediate sewers.
