In this Workshop you will make a beautiful top using Tana Lawn cotton of Liberty of London. It is perfect for the warm weather but can be worn all year round layered with a cosy cardigan.
The top is loosely fitting and very comfortable to wear. It has bust darts that allow to adjust the fit around the bust and an A-line shape. The top will be be finished with overlocked seams inside and bias binding on the neckline.
You can choose your top to be sleeveless or with sleeves and sew it in your preferred length.
We suggest beautiful lightweight Tana Lawn cotton for this projects with iconic prints from the Liberty of London. The cotton is easy to work with especially for the beginner sewists. The fine quality Tana Lawn cotton is silk-like to the touch and lustrously coloured, while also being ultra-comfortable and machine washable with a breathable construction.
During the workshop you will practice:
– cutting the pattern pieces
– overlocking edges
– sewing straight and curvy lines
– sewing and adjusting darts
– adding bias facing
– inserting sleeves
– adjusting the top for your individual shape.
We sew in a cosy relaxed environment in a small group accompanied by tea, biscuits and friendly chatter.
You don’t need to worry about what to bring to this workshop because all the tools will be provided and the fabric and other necessary notions are sold right here at The Craft Company. Depending on your preferred model (with sleeves or without) and length of the top, on average you will need from 60 to 150cm of the cotton lawn. It sell at 30EUR per meter.
Email email@example.com if you have any questions and send your measurements when you decide to sign up for the workshop so we can prepare the pattern for you and make adjustments if necessary.
