On this full day workshop, using a computerised sewing machine, you will have the opportunity to make your own stylish, colourful kimono. The event will be hosted by Amy Trainor, designer and maker of Kaleidoscope Textiles, a sustainable bag and accessory fashion brand. Amy works with high-quality, bold, bright fabric and materials to create bags and accessories that stand out from the crowd.
Under Amy’s guidance you will learn how to do the following:
- Thread a machine and wind a bobbin on a computerised machine
- Lay out fabric accurately and cut out a kimono pattern according to your
measurements, as well as including all relevant notches and tailor’s tacks
- Sew kimono pattern pieces together
- Incorporate French seams into the garment for a professional finish
- Top stitch bias binding to the raw edge of the kimono
The workshop is suitable for beginners who have some experience working on a sewing machine, as well as those who have prior sewing/dress making experience. It’s a great opportunity to meet new people, develop your sewing/dressmaking skills as well as creating a stylish, cool kimono.
