Wiksten Haori Live Virtual Workshop // 3 sessions // Starts Feb 21
We're taking one of our most popular workshops to Zoom! Join us as we sew the Wiksten Haori, a Japanese-inspired jacket pattern, AT HOME together in this live virtual class.
The Haori pattern is a lined jacket with large pockets and a fold-over collar. This oversized jacket has taken the sewing community by storm due to its functionality and style, and the fact that it looks more complicated to sew than it actually is! Fully lined and reversible, the design includes three different lengths to choose from-- short (hip length), mid (below-hip length), and long (thigh length). You can leave the lining off if you want a lighter layer.
This is the perfect garment for cool nights or to protect yourself from indoor AC. Need some inspo? Check out the thousands of lovely examples on Instagram: http://instagram.com/explore/tags/wikstenhaori

Skill Level: Advanced Beginner to Intermediate. You should feel comfortable using a sewing machine and sewing straight lines at an accurate seam allowance. It's okay if you're new to sewing garments, but you will need to feel comfortable cutting fabric on your own since that will be required ahead of time.
Virtual Class Info: This is a VIRTUAL CLASS hosted live on Zoom. After registering, you will receive an email from the instructor with Zoom access instructions as well as the supply list and any other information you may need to participate. You will log in at the designated times, and the instructor will walk you and the other participants through each step of the construction process. We will record each Zoom meeting and you can re-watch any part of the class, so even if you need to miss part of the live class you can still catch up. All students may be expected to do up to an hour of extra "homework" in between sessions to stay on pace.
Pattern and materials not included. You will need to purchase your own pattern and cut your fabric ahead of time so the class will focus on sewing only. AFTER REGISTERING, YOU WILL RECEIVE AN AUTOMATIC EMAIL ENTITLED "YOUR DOWNLOADS ARE READY," WHICH CONTAINS INFO ABOUT THE PATTERN AND SUPPLY LIST. Please download and read this file!
