$ 160.00

This product is unavailable

We.can’t.stop.making these and are pretty sure you might soon have three of these in your closets after making one in this one-day workshop with lead designer and founder of Wiksten, Jenny Gordy! We’re so excited to welcome Jenny to teach one of our favorite patterns and a wardrobe staple for many of us here at Drygoods. With the release of the printed pattern, with three length options, it’s the perfect garment with which to start your fall sewing! To say that Jenny is one of our favorites in the industry would also be an understatement.

While it has many a straight line, it’s a great skill builder with technical elements such as installing a lining. So that you may focus more on learning construction and helpful tips and tricks with Jenny, you’re welcome to come in for a gratis visit to trace and cut your pattern/fabric out prior to class. Our Pattern 101 is included in this registration. If you feel confident, please feel free to cut your fabric out at home before you arrive. Having your fabric cut out before class also sets you up to finish while you’re in class.
