Peacoat Session

Peacoat Session

(Sessions are 8 weeks from date below)
  • Wednesday 13th March

What to expect...

7pm to 9pm - 40 Rock Lane - £80 - 8 weeks

We will spend the 8 weeks making a Peacoat. The Peacoat we are making is from Vogue Pattern V8884. We will be making either view A or B which is semi-fitted, partially interfaced, lined coat is double-breasted and has a collar, collar band, shoulder pads, yokes, and two-piece sleeves. There is topstitching and a welt pocket (arrrggghhhhhhh!!!... just kidding) The length is optional too. The only difference between view A and B is the length.

It is a great jacket to take you from winter to spring and depending on the fabric you choose can be a casual, lightweight mac style jacket or a more substantial coat when made with wool. If you need some fabric inspiration we have created a Pinterest Board for you here!

The fabric you choose for this pattern will really change the way it looks and feels. The pattern is designed mainly for cotton drill/canvas fabric but you could also break all the rules and choose a teddy coat or felt wool fabric.

You will need to purchase both Fabric and the Pattern for this session. Full details will be sent to you upon booking but you will need approx 2.5/3m of fabric

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 8 weeks with a beautiful coat... handmade by you!
