About this style:
We have 2 lengths - to the waist for then adding a skirt, or longer to mid hip to wear alone. The longer version is similar to this New Look 6483 pattern. We have created trace-off card patterns for these 2 options that include extra seam allowance at the side and shoulders to assist with accurate tissue-fitting of the pattern, which you'll learn when completing this project in class

    What to bring:

    • 2m of fabric to make your toile.  This can be calico or good quality medium weight 100% cotton fabric that you would wear but that isn't too expensive, incase it fits perfectly or is a wearable first toile!  
    • A bobbin or 50p to buy from one us to keep
    • Glasses if you need for close up work  

    We provide (or bring your own): scissors, chalk, tape measure, pins
