New Sydney Classes – Learn to Sew a Kaftan

We’ve just added a new sewing class to our timetable and it’s a summer dream!

In this class, you’ll learn to sew the Isabelle Kaftan, designed by sewing instructor Nikki. It comes in five design variations (pictured above) and is a fully adjustable low waste pattern. There are two sleeve and four length options. The hip measurement with the side shaping goes up to 184cm (204cm without). Not only is this garment a fabulous and simple piece, it’s also a great way to learn finishing techniques for necklines and constructing and sewing bias binding.
