The workshop will take place in our shop just around the corner from Broadway Market. It's about 15 minutes walk from Bethnal Green tube station, 10 minutes from London Fields and Cambridge Heath overground stations.  


In this weekend course you will make your unlined jacket with the hands on support of our excellent teacher Georgia! Bring your own pattern and we’ll help you through all the tricky bits from constructing your collar, to perfecting your pockets. Leave with a professionally sewn, beautiful new jacket and level up your outerwear skills!   


+ How to take your measurements and pick the right size for outerwear

+ How to adapt and fit your pattern

+ How to construct a collar

+ How to make and attach a variety of pocket types (depending on your choice of pattern!)

+ How to work with interfacing to stabilize fabric

+ How to create a button placket and button holes

+ How to pick professional seam finishes to elevate your jacket

+ How to sew flat felled seams 

+ Tips and tricks to help you achieve a professional finish

This is a practical class and you will leave with your new jacket!


This class is suitable for confident beginners and intermediate sewists. You need to know how to use a sewing machine, but might be trying jacket making for the first time!


+ Use of our Pfaff Ambition 635 sewing machines in the classes. If you'd like to learn on your own machine then please do bring it along - please let us know the model in advance and bring your manual with you.

+ All tools and equipment

+ A copy of our Lunar jacket sewing pattern (you can choose to work on a different pattern in the class if you'd prefer)

+ Drinks and sweet treats to keep you going throughout the class.


+ A pattern for an unlined jacket. Go for a modern classic workwear jacket, like our Lunar Jacket, or a denim jacket style like the Tilly and the Buttons Sonny Jacket - the choice is yours! If using a PDF pattern, this should be printed and A4 sheets stuck together before the class to maximise sewing time.
+ Fabric as per the recommendations on your jacket pattern.
+ Haberdashery like buttons, zips and interfacing as per your pattern. These can also be purchased in the shop over the weekend.
+ Matching thread


The workshop will take place in our studio around the corner from Broadway Market.

It's about 15 minutes walk from Bethnal Green tube station, 5 minutes from London Fields and Cambridge Heath Overground stations. The studio is at ground floor level with no steps. It is fully accessible and has a fully accessible toilet.
