CREATE YOUR OWN KIMONO BLOUSE, DRESS OR BLAZER
Sewing level required: basic knowledge of using the sewing machine.
Learn the clothes making techniques (working with simple patterns, fabric cutting, methods of sewing different surfaces) that allow you to create a unisex, size-flexible kimono blouse (you can choose to personalize your kimono into a blazer, a blouse or a kimono-dress).
Each class has a clear step-by-step structure and a number of maximum 4 participants, in order to have a complete understanding of the sewing process and to obtain by the end of the class a finished product.
YOU WILL LEARN
- how to read and work with simple patterns;
- how to implement the concept of zero waste design/to find creative solutions for reusing an old garment or fabric;
- how to work with intersections;
- how to finish necklines/blouse openings;
- how to use the most common technique for finishing clothes’ bottom (also known as hem);
- many other things you will understand in the process.
YOU WILL TAKE HOME
A timeless kimono blouse in a flexible size and the ability to recreate it by yourself at home; a deeper understanding of fabrics in relationship to the body; a set of techniques useful for sewing other simple projects (robes, ponchos, shortening clothes, making curtains/table cloths) and the confidence to continue with more complex projects.
