Pyjamas – the Closet Core Carolyn. The past couple of years has seen the rise in casual wear with the traditional pyjama emerging as a key trend. Elevate your dressmaking skills by making your own stylish pair.
The course will include:
Handling tricky fabrics like cotton lawn and silk
Cutting out and pattern matching
Choosing an interfacing to compliment your fabric choice
Setting up your sewing machine and overlocker (if you are using one) for perfect stitching
Seam and neatening options including French seams
Making and adding beautiful piping for that trendy traditional look
Pressing for a professional finish
Conquer curved seams and collars
Buttonholes including bound for a vintage look
The non-roll elastic casing
And lots more techniques and top tips along the way.
You will need to purchase the Closet Core Carolyn pyjama pattern and fabric and cut out your pyjamas for the first session.
We have changed the format of our Sew Short Course programme in 2023 to make it more flexible for you. Instead of specific course dates you can now book any of the courses as a Sew Personal session or a shared Sewing Bee workshop. The session is limited to one or two sewers giving you lots of tutor time.
