The Sapporo Jacket Workshop – SOLD OUT

Saturday 15th, 10am-5pm

Over 9 hours of tuition!

Learn to sew one of the most popular coat sewing patterns just in time for a Melbourne winter – The Sapporo Coat by Papercut Patterns. This coat has a dramatic cocoon silhouette and angled seaming. You can choose lightweight fabric for a spring/summer version or cosy wool for cooler weather. The fully lined Sapporo features pockets hidden in the front seams, and is a pattern for every season: choose between cropped and long sleeves, the full length coat and the shorter jacket, and it’ll be your fave go-to piece year round.
