Saturday Beginners Dressmaking Course. March – April
March 23, 2019 @ 11:00 am - April 6, 2019 @ 3:30 pm£25 – £75
Our comprehensive beginners dressmaking course but on a Saturday, 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, dressdre top, ( about 6-10 pattern pieces) and we’ll cover dressmaking techniques as needed.
You’ll need a simple pattern, some fabric and Saturdays spare for 3 weeks. The course runs on Saturday daytimes, 11am – 3.30pm. £75 for 6 weeks. Includes refreshments and some materials.
