Join us for an all-day workshop to make this French workwear-inspired jacket.

The Workwear jacket combines fashion with practical, everyday wear. Featuring a straight boxy fit, four large patch pockets and flat-felled seams for sturdiness, you can wear it with practically everything and the more you wear it the better it gets!

This is a unisex design with sizes ranging from XS to 2XL, please consult the sizing tab below to select your correct size. If you need help with your measurements check this video: how to measure your body.

Prior to the workshop your selected fabric will be cut and marked ready for sewing.
