Make your own cardigan without learning to knit! With our cardigan pattern we'll teach you to work with 'true-knit' fabric or light weight jerseys to make the perfect layering garment for cooler weather.  Our pattern is a classic design you will be reaching for again and again.  

During the workshop you will learn how to:

  • Measure yourself for dressmaking.
  • Cut out a garment using a paper pattern.
  • Work with jersey fabrics.
  • Use an overlocker to construct a garment.

What is included:

  • Use of all machines and equipment
  • Your pattern to take away
  • Tea and biscuits

What you need to bring:

Fabric- 2m of 60” wide lightweight to medium weight jersey
You are welcome to buy fabrics from our range or bring your own. We recommend you pre-wash all fabrics to be used in dressmaking so please allow time for this.
