In this two-part course you will learn how to make your own beautiful suffragette doll with her elegant coat, bespoke hat and sash in traditional purple, green and white colours. You can also use the pattern with alternative colours to make an Edwardian style costume doll. This project is suitable for those with some experience of sewing.

Part One will include how to make the doll figure, including the face and hair.


Part Two  where Claire will show you how to make her skirt, coat and hat, and how to print a ‘Votes for Women’ sash and hat band.


A full list of materials, pattern and instructions will be attached to your confirmation email and in the accompanying notes for each session, along with the text to print your sash and hat band. The project will include both machine sewing and hand sewing. The doll can also be made entirely by hand, although this will take more time. 

Zoom log in details will be included at the bottom of your confirmation email after you have registered.
