Cozy Meets Chic: Craft Your Own Southbank Sweater or Dress!

Experience the epitome of comfort and style with The Make Spot's Southbank Sweater Workshop taking place in our custom studio in Portskewett between 10:00 to 16:30, immerse yourself in a day of creativity and style.

The Nina Lee Southbank Sweater and Sweater Dress redefine cozy-chic fashion, offering a versatile addition to your wardrobe. With a slightly oversized fit, funnel neck, and drop-shoulders, these designs are on-trend, comfortable, and effortlessly flattering.

Choose from three variations: the sweater dress, hip-length top, or cropped sweater—all featuring slouchy, slightly over-long sleeves with cuffs. Crafted from medium-weight knits with up to 20% stretch, such as ponte roma or boiled wool, or lighter-weight jerseys for a softer, drapier look, these garments are perfect for any occasion.

Your session fee includes the Nina Lee Southbank Sweater pattern (normally £15.50 rrp), threads, machine usage, and refreshments. Simply bring a packed lunch and your preferred fabric. Located in our welcoming studio in Portskewett, immerse yourself in a supportive environment where you can learn, create, and connect with fellow sewing enthusiasts.
