Description: This is a 2.5 hour workshop that is suitable for confident beginners and perfect for sewists who attended the 'Sew Your Own Clutch Bag' workshop.  It is advisable that you have used a sewing machine before.

By the end of the session you'll have made your very own stylish kimono and will be provided with step-by-step instructions so that you can sew a kimono at home to match any outfit and occasion.

Our sewing workshops are relaxed and friendly. They take place in a comfortable private room at the famous Cabbage Patch Pub in the centre of Twickenham, located next to Twickenham train station and with access to parking. Class sizes are capped at eight with two instructors to ensure everyone gets the time and attention they need.

What to bring: In addition to your lovely self, you will need to bring the fabric you wish to make your kimono with, either cotton lawn or medium weight viscose. You will require 1m if your fabric is 140cm in width and has a non-directional (does not have a pattern running in a particular direction).  1.5m if you fabric is less than 140cm in width or has a directional print.

All other equipment and materials will be provided. 

Approximately two weeks ahead of the class you will receive an email containing fabric recommendations from the Sewalicious collection, along with a single use 10% discount code should you wish to purchase your fabric from us. If you have already seen the fabric on our site that you would like to use, we'd be happy to provide the code immediately to avoid any availability dissapointment. Just email us at If your fabric is purchased from us, we will bring it along to the class for you saving you the postage charge also.

Of course you are more than welcome to bring along fabric bought elsewhere. Feel free to check with us on the suitability of a fabric before you purchase it. We would be happy to help.
