Clyde Jumpsuit Day Camp : starts Tuesday July 2, from 11am-2pm for 4 consecutive days

$330.00 CAD

THE WORKROOM PARKDALE : This workshop is scheduled to take place in our new studio at 207 Cowan Avenue, Unit A. We can't wait to welcome you there!

Sew and slip on this one-piece wardrobe star in time for Spring!  The Clyde Jumpsuit features a unique three-panel design with designer Elizabeth Suzanne’s iconic panel crescent pockets that cleverly emerge from the side panels.  Make it in breezy linen, soft cotton, mid-weight canvas or wool.  The pattern offers three length options with varying torso and inseam measurements. This garment is easy wearing and slips on and off through the scooped neckline. Wear it on it’s own, or over a thin tee in the spring or a thicker sweater in the winter. You will want to live in this chic all-purpose uniform!

Prerequisite : This is an intermediate garment class. Students must have completed at least one previous garment and be confident using a sewing machine on their own.

This pattern is available as a digital download PDF only, available for purchase here. Students must come to class with their pattern ready: either as a large scale print, or printed at home and fully taped together prior to class.

Please note: As we all sew at an individual pace, projects are not always completed during class hours. Class participants have complimentary access to our Parkdale Studio space during Sew By The Hour times until their workshop project is completed.

This sewing class is four 3-hour sessions. Meeting each day July 2, 3, 4 & 5
