The Greta Dungarees are an easy fitting, yet smart pair of everyday overalls. When I designed them I wanted to create the perfect garment when I’m at work in the studio. Because of the wrap around waist they are super comfy and easy to fit on a variety of body shapes. I included extra deep pockets in the design, to keep them utilitarian. I decided to make them free of any zips, buttons or clips because I love the simplicity of smooth lines. This means all you need is the fabric and thread to get started. This workshop is open to all, regardless of previous sewing experience. 

When: Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th October 2019 from 10am till 4pm, with one hour lunch each day.
Where: Made My Wardrobe Studio, 49 Poland Street, Soho, London, W1F 7ND
