Don’t they look fantastic!! Yes, these really were their first garments and yes they are all made from knitted fabrics. We have from left to right:
Tracey-Leigh in her gorgeous stripey vest, Kate in her floral print sweatshirt shrug, Lesley in her retro style glasses print shrug, Anne in a lovely version of the asymmetric skirt and Louise in a gorgeous vest dress – I love that colour!
All 5 students did absolutely brilliantly, they worked really hard, crammed loads of learning into a day and all had a finished garment to show for it.
Here’s what they thought of the day in their own words:
“Absolutely fantastic day, I’m an absolute beginner and came away with a dress I made and love.” Louise
“Really exciting to have something completed to go home with. I had a really fun day and learnt loads. Thanks!” Tracey-Leigh
“A lovely way to spend a day, being creative with like-minded people. Having a bit of banter with nice cups of tea and by the end of it all you have a lovely handmade creation!” Lesley
“A really good day!! Learnt lots of basic techniques which will be very enjoyable to put into practise.” Anne
“Lovely day as so very helpful to learn how to do things properly!” Kate
If you’d like to have a go at making your own version of one of these garments at home, all three patterns are available to buy from my online shop at MIY Collection, printed on sturdy paper not tissue paper and complete with comprehensive instruction booklet, including how to work with knitted fabrics.
I will be running this workshop again between July and December this year. To hear first about new dates and get priority booking before they’re available online, sign-up to the MIY Workshop newsletter here.
