What you'll do
We'll shop for fabrics in the Brixton Village and Market Row shops. This area has been revitalized and has come to be a cultural highlight of South London. We will visit 2/3 of my favourite fabric shops, selling fabrics ranging from African prints to the finest silks. Then we'll head back to my studio, where you'll learn to cut your own pattern on African print fabric. I'll teach you how to make and sew together your new drawstring pants over some coffee, tea, and refreshments. Afterwards, you'll take home a customized pair of pants. I'll give you a coupon for free lifetime access to my online course for the lesson, so you can make and customize drawstring pants at home for yourself, for friends and family, anytime you want.
