What to expect...

10am to 4pm - The Paper Haven Farsley - £49

You will spend the day making the brand new Stevie Pattern from Tilly & the Buttons. The 'Stevie' can be made as a dress or top and is a super simple make with a boxy shape with a round neckline and the option to fasten with a button or ribbon ties. You also have the options of turn up cuffs and a patch pocket too! Easy to throw on and go... a fantastic every day pattern which you will want to make again and again.

You will need to purchase your sewing pattern & fabric, and need to cut your fabric before you arrive at the session. But don't worry... you will be sent a video via email which details exactly how to find your correct size as well as complete step by step instructions on how to cut out your pattern and fabric.

You can purchase your pattern here;

The amount of fabric you require will depend on whether you are making a top or a dress, full details will be sent to you upon booking. Roughly you will need approx 1.5m and for the dress you would need approx 2m. Fabric can be any Non-Stretchy fabric. We would recommend a light to medium weight woven fabric like, Linen, Chambray, Cotton Lawn or Viscose (Rayon).

For ideas and inspiration on which fabric to use, check out our Stevie Pinterest Board.

Bring your own sewing machine, if you have one. If you need to borrow a machine just contact us and we will reserve one for you. You will be able to walk out of the class with a stunning dress/top to be proud of... handmade by you!

Is this Session for me?... This session is perfect for someone who has used a sewing machine before or if you have attended our beginners sewing session, or if you are self taught and would like to learn to make clothes specifically. You may also enjoy this course if you are not quite able to get that professional finish at home.
