Our dressmaking childrens clothes course is designed to take your sewing to the next level!

You can choose to take the complete 4 week course, outlined below, or opt to join us for just one, two or three sessions and complete the projects of your choice.


Leggings or trousers with proper pockets!

  • We will cover reading patterns, making pattern pieces, cutting fabrics, seam finishes and using elastic.

Tailored shirt, girl's blouse with pretty collar or a dress with buttons on the back (made with cotton fabric), hoodie for a girl or boy or baby grow made with jersey/knit fabrics

  • Adding sleeves, dealing with collars and buttonholes or poppers!

Week 4 and beyond - BONUS!

  • If you manage to finish both your projects early you can spend the final week tackling one of the other projects not taken up earlier in the course, you may not get the garment finished in one evening, but we will get you a long way towards completion - if you don't manage to get the third item started, don't panic, you will get a pattern of your choice to complete at your leisure.


For those of you who want to join us for one or two projects, here are our estimates of the time needed for each make:

If you are thinking of joining us for one session:

  • You can complete leggings or the skater dress (made with jersey fabrics) or trousers with proper pockets (made with cotton fabrics).

If you are thinking of joining us for two sessions:

  • You can complete a shirt, blouse or dress (made with cotton fabrics) or a hoodie or babygrow (made with jersey fabrics).

If you are thinking of joining us for three sessions:

  • You can make anything from the one session list plus something from the two session list!  



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).  This course is designed for people who have already had some sewing experience, however long ago!  You may not have tackled dressmaking before, but you are comfortable threading a machine and handling fabric.  

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!
