Sat/Sun 25/26 April 2020 - Weekend Course - Tailoring - Pona Jacket

£150.00
Are you looking to up your sewing techniques?  Move on to something more than dresses and tops? Come and join our tailoring expert Claudia for this 'tailoring-lite' course, the Pona Jacket.

The Pona Jacket by Helen's Closet is a modern outer layer that is easy to make and style. An extra-wide facing allows this unlined jacket to drape open in the front, no closures necessary! Pona has an oversized blazer feel, complete with pockets and a statement lapel. Make a modern, cropped Pona in linen for warmer weather or a longer jacket in wool for fall and winter. Pona is a perfect beginner jacket pattern!

Size Range: 0-30

Recommended Fabrics:
Light to medium weight fabrics with no stretch, such as mid-weight linen or cotton, corduroy, and wool. Pona can be made in a lighter-weight, drapey fabric such as Tencel twill for a more fluid look.

The course includes the pattern and the tuition, you will need to purchase supplies needed to make this blazer.  A full list is available and will be sent out prior to the course.  Please note that this is an advanced beginner/ intermediate course and not suitable for complete beginners.


This course runs on Saturday and Sunday 25th/ 26th April 2020 from 10.30am - 4.30pm.
