About Dressmaking Techniques

6 week course on Wednesdays from 21/02/2024 - 27/03/2024

Dressmaking Techniques’ is a Dressmaking course with a difference. Instead of slogging through a whole garment, this innovative course will teach you, week by week, the basic methods of making clothes. such as darts, fastenings, adding a waistband, a facing etc. Are you tired of wonky zips? Or do you even avoid them altogether? Do your facings refuse to lie flat? Yes? Then this is the course to help you fast-track your clothes-making and raise your sewing game.

Improve those common construction methods for making your own clothes and giving them a professional finish.

Course Description
Through a series of tutorials, and practical sessions, you’ll be working samples of each technique, so you can practise the skills learnt in that session. By the end of the course, you’ll have a library of new techniques at your fingertips to take home so your sewing will be more ‘high end’ than ‘high street’.

Level: Intermediate. You need to have foundation skills in seams and hems gained from a Beginners’ sewing course. Also you’ll have already used a commercial paper pattern to make at least 1 garment (or tried to).
