Beginners Dressmaking Course – Starts 15th Jan
January 15, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - February 19, 2015 @ 8:30 pm
It’s our Basic Dressmaking Course!! Come and learn to make your own clothes, you’ll love it!!
The course runs for 6 weeks, on a Thursday evening and will cover:
Understanding your pattern instructions and markings
Transferring your pattern markings
Accurate cutting out
Fitting a zip or making a buttonhole
Pinning and sewing a garment
Plus any other help or support you need as you go. As usual class sizes are small so there’s plenty of one to one time.
The photo is of a dress made on the last course as well!! Although we do generally advise you to start with a simple skirt or top to ensure you can get in finished in the time scale, however if you have time and space to sew at home, then dresses are a go!!
You will need a pattern, a box of pins and material to make your garment, although we have a small stock of fabric to use if necessary. It’s not essential to have your pattern by the first week as there is a small amount of theory to cover but after that time is of the essence!!
£70 including refreshments, machine use and some materials.
