About the Class:
The York Pinafore is a modern take on a classic pinafore dress with a cocoon shape, patch pockets, and multiple neckline options. Students will learn step-by-step how to make the York pinafore from the pattern designer herself. We will go over everything you need to know to make a perfect pinafore, including:

  • Choosing your correct size. 
  • Applying patch pockets.
  • Tips for working with bias binding
  • Tips for professional finishing techniques.

Class fee includes:

  • 6 hours of class time
  • A kit containing 1.5 meters of fabric, matching bias tape, printed sewing pattern, and a link for the PDF sewing pattern & instructions. 
  • Lunch, snacks, and refreshments throughout the day.
  • The use of our class sewing machines and tools - there is no need for you to bring anything!
  • The opportunity to purchase our fabrics in person, at a 15% discount! 

This pattern is designed for a beginner. For this class, you must be comfortable threading and operating a domestic sewing machine. Experience using woven fabrics will improve your experience in the class, but is not required.
