Sew Chic, Be Unique: Master the Breton Style!

Discover the art of crafting timeless elegance with The Make Spot's Breton Style Top workshop. Taking place in our custom studio in Portskewett between 10:00 to 16:30, immerse yourself in a day of creativity and style.

This versatile top is more than just a wardrobe staple - it's a canvas for your personal flair. Learn to stitch stretch fabric with confidence, master the art of matching stripes, and explore pocket placement and stretch binding techniques. With sizes ranging from 6 to 24 and options for short, 3/4, or long sleeves, the styling possibilities are endless.

No need to worry about basic materials or sewing equipment - we've got you covered. Your session fee includes the pattern (normally £15.50 rrp), threads, machine usage, and even refreshments. Simply bring your preferred fabric and a packed lunch, and we'll take care of the rest. Not sure what fabric to choose? Ponte di roma, double knit, jersey, t-shirt material or interlock are all perfect options, stripes are optional! We have some beautiful classic Breton ecru and dark navy 190gsm organic cotton stripe fabric available to buy at £8.50 per 1/2 metre if you don't want to source your own. 

Located in our brand-new studio in Portskewett, our workshop promises a comfortable and inspiring environment to hone your skills. And as a bonus, enjoy 10% off all full-price fabrics (excluding Breton fabric) in-store during your course.
