About Improve Your Dressmaking
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Do you enjoy dressmaking but aren't happy with the finish? Do you have bumps at the bottom of your zips. Or do your facings just refuse to lie flat? Would you like to improve your dressmaking but don't have the time to commit to a course? In this class, I'll share a few techniques you can use to improve the look of your dressmaking. Instead of wrestling with making a whole garment, we'll concentrate on learning some foundation dressmaking techniques by making samples of each technique. There are yours to take home for future reference.
