Joti Duster Jacket is a loose and floaty over-garment that can be worn with a vest top and jeans or as a top layer to a dress. There are gathered diagonal style lines to the front and the drop-shoulder sleeves are full and are gathered onto a slim cuff. The neck trim, that runs the full length of the coat, works well in a contrasting fabric. The back has a gathered yoke and there are in-seam pockets.

The workshop runs from 10am – 5pm and includes the cost of the pattern and a light lunch. Tara will be your teacher for the day – she has a relaxed, cheerful manner and plenty of experience teaching everyone from beginners to the more capable. She will be able to help you with every element, from taking your own measurements to creating the perfect neckline trim.

You do not need to bring anything except your own fabric and thread. There are sewing machines, scissors and everything you could need on hand at the studio, however, if you prefer to sew on your own machine, that is fine too. You are very welcome to bring your own.
