August classes at The Village Haberdashery

August is holiday month, but we still have a few really fabulous classes planned at our West Hampstead shop if you’re sticking around town!

Sew a Scout Tee or Tiny Pocket Tank with Rachel Pinheiro
One evening: Wednesday, 5 August, 6pm – 9pm – £55

Learn to sew a cute woven tee or tank for summer! The Scout Tee by Grainline Patterns is a woven t-shirt with capped sleeves and scoop neck. The Tiny Pocket Tank is a great basic top for spring and summer which does double duty as a layering piece in the fall and winter. Both tops are great first garment projects for aspiring sewers that will teach you how to work with a pattern, finish neck and armholes with bias binding and/or set sleeves.
