Wiksten Haori // 2 Days // July 11 & 12
Sew along with us in this weekend workshop to create the cozy Wiksten Haori, a Japanese-inspired 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
