Cape Session

Cape Session

(sessions are 6 weeks from date below)
  • Monday, 4th September

What to expect...

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


Autumn is creeping upon us, so get your wardrobe ready with this beautiful Cape/Poncho style coat. A gorgeous alternative to an autumn coat which instantly adds style and sophistication to any basic outfit.

The cape you make will be fully lined and have the addition of a stand up collar or you can opt for a detachable fur collar to add extra snazziness to your cape. You also get to choose the length you would like and there is one fastening at the neckline.

You will need to purchase the sewing pattern - Simplicity 8263 - which is currently half price HERE!

You will also need to bring your own fabric - between 2m to 3m depending on the length, style and size you choose (exact details will be sent to you on booking) of fabric and lining. We think the cape would look great in Wool, Tweed, Courdouroy, Denim or even Velvet

For inspiration and ideas on choosing your fabric, you can see other Cape Coats Here!

You leave the session at the end of the 6 weeks with a beautiful cape... 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 basic items before and would like to learn to insert a lining or learn to use a thicker fabric type, insert a fastening then this is for you.
