coat making class

Make your own playful and practical raincoat or cosy duffle to shelter from the elements this Autumn. Eden is fully lined, has raglan sleeves and thoughtful details like a high neck hood to keep out the wind, practical pockets and a hanging loop.

Choose from the hip or longer length, snaps or toggle fastenings and optional zip, two pocket styles and optional storm flaps. Whether on a weekend walk, at a festival or doing the school run, you can wear your DIY outerwear with pride!

This beautiful lined coat is a more complex make so in order to make the most of your time in the studio we ask you to cut out your paper pattern to your size at home before the class, we can help and advise you on sizing.
