Learn to sew your very own Breton top!

In this workshop you will cut, sew and complete a handmade garment in one session. Guided by Rebecca Coyle of Love and Squalor, you will learn the basics of working with stretch fabric, get to grips with an overlocker machine and master the art of stripe matching.

This workshop is suitable for beginners and sewers with a bit of experience, and is the perfect opportunity to learn a new skill and to add a classic piece to your wardrobe!
