Baker Boy Cap - Gary Mills

Purchase this digital product and receive a link to the YouTube video of the CraftyMonkies Online Interactive Workshop featuring leading designer, tutor & craft expert Gary Mills and his fabulous Baker Boy Cap class, which first aired via Zoom on Sunday 14th April 2022.

 

Once you have purchased this product, the PDF document you will receive contains a link to the private-access video on YouTube.

 

Introduction by Gary:-

The Baker Boy Cap is a classic example of an English heritage item which has been reborn. Old styles and trends are always re-emerging, but the craze has gained a boat load of credibility with iconic celebrities such as the model Kate Moss and social media celebrity Kendall Jenner adopting the trend. We have even seen it as one of the challenge tasks on ‘Great British Sewing Bee’! How will you do? These hats look great on both the guys and the girls… If you’re having a bad hair day, then they can hide it, if the sun is a little strong on your head, they’re fabulous to keep you cool and in the wetter and cooler months they are practically stylish. In short, it's a win, win, win, 'must have' piece of headgear!

Stretch Jersey Skater-Style Dress - Gary Mills

 

Purchase this digital product and receive a link to the YouTube video of a CraftyMonkies Online Interactive Workshop featuring leading craft expert Gary Mills and his fabulous Stretch Jersey Skater-Style Dress class, which first aired via Zoom in 2022.

Gary Mills hosts this ingenious workshop where he'll teach you how to transform a basic T-shirt into a fabulous Skater-style Dress or Tunic. Not only will you learn this clever technique, but you'll also be working with Jersey fabric too!

 

Introduction by Gary:-

Just by taking a basic old T-Shirt as the starting point, I've created this easy-to-make and wear Stretch Jersey Skater Style Tunic top, that is timeless, suiting all ages and sizes. The style has a flattering scoped cowl neckline, short sleeves, and a flattering swing drape from under the bust down to the hipline, which just makes it so easy to wear. It’s a garment that you could keep on making in different lengths, finishes and details. You can dress it up or down, for a causal look. It looks great over leggings or trousers! In three hours, you will learn how to draft this pattern to fit you, cut out and make the garment in jersey fabric. Learn how you can finish it off to give a real, neat professional finish and all with just an ordinary sewing machine, using a simple zig zag stitch. No specialist equipment is required for this sewing project! Making your own clothes is so satisfying, but best of all it’s a budget buster!
