Cora Shorts

Friday June 14, 10am - 4pm

Presenting the second delightful creation in our Fun & Done Pants Series: the Cora Short pattern by Style Arc! Elevate your summer wardrobe with these vintage-inspired shorts, designed to add a touch of luxury to your look while keeping you cool and stylish.

Featuring a wider leg design, the Cora Short exudes a timeless charm that effortlessly blends vintage flair with modern sophistication. When worn, these shorts have an almost skirt-like appearance, adding an extra element of elegance and femininity to your ensemble.

With its back zip and waist facing, the Cora Short is not only stylish but also easy to make, making it a perfect choice for both beginner and experienced sewists alike. During this class, students will have the opportunity to learn essential sewing techniques such as darts, adding length to a garment and a lapped zipper application, adding valuable skills to their repertoire.

Additionally, the Cora Short pattern, with its absence of a waistband, makes it easy to fit, ensuring a flattering and comfortable silhouette for all body types. Crafted from luxurious fabrics such as linen, crepe, cotton blends, viscose or rayon, the Cora Short promises to be both elegant and comfortable, offering a perfect balance of style and functionality for the summer months.

Join us for this exciting class in our Fun & Done Pants Series, where you'll not only create chic and versatile shorts but also gain valuable sewing skills that you can use again and again. Don't miss out on the opportunity to enhance your sewing repertoire and add a touch of vintage-inspired glamour to your everyday style!
