Breton Top Session

Breton Top Session

(sessions are 6 weeks from date below)
  • LEEDS ONLY
  • Wednesday, 19th July

What to expect...

7pm to 9pm - 40 Rock Lane - £60 - 6 weeks

We will spend the 6 weeks making a stylish Breton Style Top. The breton top has become a must have wardrobe piece which will compliment any garment, especially your Cleo Dress (if you have already made this at our session.

No closures make it easy to pull it on and go!.. its a great way to learn how to handle stretch fabrics and we will teach you lots of tips and tricks to get the perfect fit and finish.

The Breton Top is a great, easy wearing staple. It looks fab for spring and summer in lightweight jerseys or cosy knits to keep you warm in winter. It has stylish raglan sleeves which can be inserted in a contrast fabric to add a bit of funk to your shoulders, or just keep the same fabric for a subtle yet chic finish.

You will have the options of a long or short sleeve and a round or v neck. Of course you don't have to do a standard stripey top either, you can go with any stretch knit fabric you like.

You will need to purchase the Top pattern from yourself which is Burda Style Pattern 6630. (details will be send upon booking)

You will also need to bring your own fabric - between 1.5m to 2m depending on the length, style and size you choose (exact details will be sent to you on booking)

For inspiration and ideas on choosing your fabric, you can see other Breton Tops Here!

You leave the session at the end of the 6 weeks with a Breton top... handmade by you!

Is this session for me?... This is a great session for people who have completed the Beginners Sewing Session and would like to learn to make clothes. If you have sewn items before, from non-stretchy fabric or would like to learn either stretch fabric or to make clothes and learn pattern fitting techniques.
