garment series: kelly anorak by closet case

Come and join us for a whole weekend, learn new techniques and complete this gorgeous Kelly Anorak Jacket from Closet Case Patterns.

This pattern is a classic shape with a modern cut, a perfect choice for a transitional weather garment. It is lightweight and unlined, it features a two piece cuffed sleeve, optional drawstring waist, gussetted flap pockets, zipper placket, snap buttons and a choice of hood or collar. 

Our own instructor Erin created a beautiful version of it last year and wrote a whole blog on it which we love!! (check it out here)

Sessions start on Friday evening, come prepared with all your fabrics and notions bought. You will spend Friday evening cutting all your fabrics ready for construction to start Saturday. You then get to spend two whole days constructing your garment and leave on Sunday with a fabulous new piece for your wardrobe, what more could you want?

Don't worry we will break for an hour each day to refuel!
