Wiksten Haori Jacket Class
March 23 @ 10:00 am - March 24 @ 1:00 pm
An event every 2 days that begins at 10:00am, repeating until March 23, 2019
Fully lined, reversible, and with three different options for length, this elegant kimono-style jacket is sure to be a wardrobe staple. This is an intermediate level sewing class; students should have some sewing experience.
Because the Wiksten Kimono Jacket is customizable with different lengths and pocket sizes, we recommend that you trace your pattern pieces onto pattern tracing paper rather than cutting them out, so that you have the pattern intact to make use of the different variations. The first part of the class is set aside to do this, so never fear if you’ve never traced a pattern before! However, it is a little time consuming, so you will probably have a little homework (about a half hour) to do in between classes in order to finish the project in two days. If you are comfortable tracing your pattern, you may certainly do so in advance of class to get a little ahead and avoid having to do any work between classes.
- Wiksten Kimono Jacket Pattern
- Main fabric: medium weight woven fabric with good drape, such as textured cotton, chambray, linen, soft denim, cotton/linen blend, twill, and wool
- Lining fabric: light to medium weight woven fabric with good drape, such as textured cotton, chambray, linen, cotton/linen blend, and silk
- 2 1/2 yds flexible, lightweight fusible interfacing
- Recommended: 2 1/2 yards pattern tracing paper (not necessary if you prefer to cut out your patterns)
- Coordinating thread (white is supplied)
As noted on the back of the pattern, if you prefer your collar to match the exterior of your jacket and not contrast, please reverse the suggested fabric lengths (e.g. purchase the recommended length of interior fabric for your exterior and vice versa. The extra recommended yardage is for the collar.)
You will receive 15% off of these materials at Fabricate. Please purchase your fabric in advance of class, as it needs to be washed and dried before class. Choose to bring your sewing machine and tools or use ours. If you bring your machine, we expect you have an understanding of how to operate it. This is a two-part class, the second day will be Sunday, March 24th, 10 – 1.
