Our 8 week introduction to dressmaking course includes patterns for 4 items. The majority of sewers are able to complete all 4 items during the course, but only with some homework. If you are a slow and steady sewer with limited time between classes to carry out pattern prep (full tuition for this will be provided!) and don't have access to a sewing machine to make up any time necessary, you may decide to aim to complete 3 garments during the course, taking the 4th pattern home to do at your leisure - if you think you fall into this category we can talk about which garments you would like to complete in class and which ones you want to tackle at home at a later date, before we start the course.
The fabric for week 1 is included in the price but you will need to provide the fabric, zips and buttons for weeks 2-8, we will provide all other materials.
You can choose from a range of patterns we hold here at sewing school in sizes 0-26, or bring your own.
Week 1-2 - Skirts
10% off all store purchases made during the course!
WHO: Classes are kept to a maximum of 4 people, if you have your own sewing machine you are encouraged to bring it, there is nothing like learning on your own machine (or you can use one of ours). Although all skill levels are welcome we don't recommend this course for absolute beginners, trying to learn about pattern cutting and adjusting at the same time as getting to grips with the sewing machine would be stressful! You don't need lots of experience, or even recent experience, but you need to be familiar with sewing. If you are completely new to sewing we recommend starting with our 5 week introduction to sewing course, or at least completing one of our other single session workshops to get comfortable with a sewing machine. IMPORTANT: patterns used fit up to a UK size 24.
WHAT: Over 8 weeks you will make a range of projects, each designed to build your skill base, from basic stitches and pattern cutting, to choosing and using interfacing, sewing with zips and adding buttonholes.
