Beginners Dressmaking. Saturday 4 Week Course: Jan to Feb.
January 25 @ 10:00 am - February 15 @ 1:00 pm£30 – £90
Our comprehensive beginners dressmaking course, suitable for anyone who can use a sewing machine to sew pretty much where they want to and has a yearning to make clothing! We’ll demystify the pattern envelope, instructions and pattern markings with you, teach you accurate sizing, measuring and cutting out, then get on and make a simple garment, including fitting a zip. If you feel you’ve not yet mastered your sewing machine, or you’d like to learn to use it we’d suggest our beginners sewing courses for starters.
The course will cover both theory and practice, class sizes are small and questions are actively encouraged. We advise you to start with a simple skirt or top, ( about 4-8 pattern pieces) and we’ll cover dressmaking techniques as needed.
You’ll need a simple pattern, some fabric and Saturdays spare for 4 weeks. There will be some cutting out of pattern pieces and fabric at home as required, in the first fortnight so please factor in some time for this. Please contact us if you wish to discuss your pattern or fabric.
This course is running over 4 consecutive Saturdays in 3 hour sessions, 10am – 1pm. Starts 25th January, cost is £90.
