Minoru Jacket

Minoru Jacket Session

(sessions are 10 weeks from date below)
  • LEEDS
  • Tuesday, 4th September

What to expect...

7pm to 9pm - 40 Rock Lane - £100 - 10 weeks

We will spend the 10 weeks making the 'Minoru' Jacket from Sewaholic Patterns. I can honestly say this is my favourite make to date, and is the one make which no one believes I have made myself. It looks so professional when finished and is so well put together.

The Minoru Jacket is a fully lined, zipped front jacket which has a secret hidden hood in the collar. The easy to sew raglan sleeves give it a relaxed feel and makes it a comfortable fit. There is also an optional elasticated waist which can hug you in at the waist for a more flattering look, or leave it out to skim the waist.

You will need to buy the pattern for this session, which you can purchase here.... You will also need to purchase your fabric and lining. Full details will be sent upon booking but you will need roughly 3m of each, which you will need to cut out at home before the session. Don't worry though as full instructions will be sent upon booking.

The fabric you choose for this pattern will really change the way it looks and feels. The pattern is designed mainly for a cotton drill or waterproof cotton for a jacket style but you can always bend the rules a bit for a different feel... I have a winter version made from tweed which I love, and I also think a courdroy would look fab too. A full breakdown of the the fabrics I love will be sent upon booking.

Is this session for me?... you must have made a few items of clothing before and not be a complete beginner. This is a great course for those who have made a few run of mill patterns, and are ready to make that really wow item to take their sewing to the next level... c'mon... you know you're ready for it!!!!

You leave the session at the end of the 10 weeks with a beautiful lined coat... handmade by you!
