About Sondra and her Scarf Kimono Jacket
Sondra launched her first line of upcycled scarf tops in 2003 and has been creating new designs ever since. This scarf jacket emerged about eight years ago and in that time, and it’s been her most popular design by far. In this workshop, you will learn how to make a simple version of the jacket that she’s made and sold by the hundreds.
When you sign up, you will receive a PDF that will contain all of the supplies you will need. In this three hour class, she will take you through the making of the jacket step-by-step, including how to make a french seam. If you are a Stitcherhood member, you will have access to a space where you can ask questions and get feedback on your jacket. And if you can’t make it in person, no worries. Everyone will be able to access a recording of the class for 10 days after it is processed.
If you have a stash of scarves that you have been saving for just the right project, this is the class for you! All you need are 4-5 scarves and a few basic sewing skills and you will have a beautiful scarf jacket that will become one of your most favorite effortless pieces and a stylish addition to any wardrobe.
