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: 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. 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).
IMPORTANT: patterns used fit upto a UK size 26 (reverse wrap upto size 20).
WHERE: Course are held in Witney or Ducklington depending on class size and your own needs.
WHEN: As this is a bespoke course we will agree a day and time to suit you. We are able to offer slots during the daytime or evening, or at weekends. Each lesson takes approx 2.5 hours. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to check out our availability before booking.
WHAT IS A ONE TO ONE OR MORE COURSE?
If you can't make one of our group courses, or would like to complete a workshop or course which isn't currently running as a group course, then a 'one to one or more' course might be just what you need!
We are happy to teach all our group courses to individuals, or small groups of friends, find the course you are interested in, and view the price for the number of people who want to learn together above. Contact us to select a date and time to suit your schedule and we can take it from there - once a date has been set you can pay in one go using the website, or we can divide the cost between the participants and invoice you all separately (the only days/times we can never do are Monday or Tuesday mornings).
If your group is larger than 4 no problem, if you are able to provide a venue then the overall cost of the course will go up by £73 for every additional participant. If you would like us to provide a venue there is a flat rate of £180 for that (remember, if your group is 4 or less the venue cost is already covered). If any of this is unclear please do ask, we are happy to provide a quote.

If you need to cancel within 3 weeks of the start date, we are sorry but we cannot offer you a refund or transfer.
