Drop-in Dressmaking sessions.

Wednesday 10am-12pm. £20 per session

Learn to make your own clothes, or improve your existing techniques.

Sewing machines available. Limited places so please phone ahead or PM me to reserve your place. Pay cash on the day.

If you need help with any of the following, then please drop-in.

-How to choose an appropriate pattern for your level of ability,
-Taking measurements, cutting and fitting the pattern, understanding pattern markings and instructions
-Altering the pattern for a perfect fit
-inserting zips
-Sewing tips and techniques to achieve a professional finish
-waistbands
-necklines and facings

This is not an exhaustive list so I can help whatever you're problem, or perhaps you'd just like to come along to sew in company. Come to just one session, or them all.

You’ll need to bring your own pattern, fabric, matching thread, plus any interfacing, zips/buttons etc which you require to complete your project. Please bring a basic sewing kit of fabric shears, sharp embroidery scissors and pins. You’ll also need a notebook.

The class size comprises no more than 4 students so I can give everyone lots of individual attention, focusing on your own personal project and skill level.

If you’d prefer to make clothes for your children instead of yourself, then you can do this here

Level: Beginners – Experienced

(tuition is personally tailored so you learn at your own skill level and pace) You must be able to use a sewing machine confidently, be comfortable handling and cutting fabric, and be able to sew straight accurate seams. If not, then why not try one of my Beginners classes first to learn these foundation sewing techniques.

Additional Dates: 25 July 2018, 01 August 2018, 08 August 2018, 15 August 2018, 22 August 2018
