Sewing School - Dressmaking - Make Yourself a Dress (3 Weeks)

Product Code: SCDMD
Availability: Out Of Stock
* Sewing Machine
Price: £90.00




If you have always wanted to make your own clothes but were to scared to try, then this is the course for you.

You can choose from the three dresses above, the first is a reverse wrap dress (upto size 20), the middle dress a classic shift (upto size 26) and the last a cocktail dress (upto size 26) that can be dressed up or down.

We will spend the first evening getting to know the pattern, measuring ourselves and adjusting the pattern for a perfect fit.  We will then prepare the pattern pieces and cut the fabric out.  Weeks 2 and 3 will see us sewing the dresses.

The cost of the course includes the tuition, a pattern of your choice, pattern transfer paper and haberdashery items including interfacing - you will need to supply the fabric.

 We will send you details of the types of fabric that are recommended for each pattern before the course.  You can make your dress out of your own choice of fabric or create a draft using calico or cotton sheets to get the fit right before making a dress with more expensive fabrics.


WHO:  Classes are kept to a maximum of 6 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 to attend, you will find it easier if you have already had some practice with a sewing machine - however long ago and however basic! If you are completely new to sewing we reccomend starting with our 5 week introduction to sewing course, or atleast completing one of our other single session workshops to get comfortable with a sewing machine.

IMPORTANT:  patterns used fit upto a UK size 26 (reverse wrap upto size 20).

WHERE: Courses are held in Duckington, just outside of Witney, or Witney itself.  

WHEN: Available dates are shown above - If you can't make it to the dates shown, why not consider signing up for a one to one or many course - click here to find out more.


Payment is required at the point of booking your place on one of our workshops or sewing courses.

In you need to cancel up to 3 weeks before the start of the class,we will offer you the choice of transferring to another date, or a refund minus a £15 cancellation fee (if we manage to sell the place this reduces to £5).

If you need to cancel within 3 weeks of the start date, we are sorry but we cannot offer you a refund or transfer.  With less than 3 week's notice it is difficult for us to fill places and it isn't fair on other people who would have liked a place, had they had more notice. We can put you on a reserve list for a future date, and if we still have spaces 3 weeks before the start of a course, we will slot you in at no additional cost.

If you are unable to attend one of the sessions, for any reason, then you can choose to complete the missed work at home, by coming earlier to future sessions, or by booking a 'catchup session' - catchup sessions are mixed sessions run a minimum of 4 times a year, where people who missed part of a course that was more than a single session long, can bring their project and complete their work - the cost for a place on a catchup session is £25 per person.


If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us - email, call 01993 700411, or pop along to one of our pop-up shops (click here for details) to meet us in person and find out more!
