Advanced - Bomber Jacket Making Weekend!
Bomber Jackets are super comfy and sleek! They are the perfect layering choice for the spring and fall seasons. In this 8 hour class over two sessions, you will be making the Simplicity 8418 Bomber Jacket. Instructor Nikki has made this jacket loads of times, so she is an expert! It is very similar to the Rigel Bomber by Papercut Patterns that we carry in our shop as well!
For winter choose a medium to heavyweight wool, for spring or summer choose lighter weight fabric such as denim or twill. Due to the large size of the pattern pieces and the time needed to cut it out, we ask students to cut their fabric pieces before class. Your instructor will be in touch via email with you closer to the date of the class to assist with this process. Please be sure to add your email and phone number at check out!
Note: To save time and space for your fellow sewists, please cut your pattern out before class. No need to stop by the shop, we will mail it to you! But we do encourage you to stop into the shop before class for help cutting out your fabric if needed.
