Intro into Dressmaking 6 Week Course
So you’ve watched the Sewing Bee, or received a sewing machine as a gift and would like to start sewing, well this is the perfect place to start.
Over 6 weekly workshop sessions we will show you how to use a commercial pattern to make your own clothes.
Over the 6 weeks you will make two garments; a simple skirt with a waistband and pockets and a slip-over top which can be lengthened into a tunic or you could even add sleeves.
We will cover lots of tips and sewing techniques and you will learn:
How to understand a commercial dressmaking pattern
How to sew accurate seams and different seam finishes
How to sew binding
How to gather a frill
How to sew a hem
How to insert a zip
How to sew pockets........ amongst lots of others too.
You will also learn how to adapt these patterns to create variations of your own. This is an excellent course to start you off in the right way and give you the confidence to try things at home on your own machines.
All your patterns and notions are supplied, all you need to do is bring along the fabric you’d like to make up your skirt and top in. Just call us and we can tell you how much fabric you will need. So you can raid your own stash or come and have a browse through all the lovely fabrics we have in our store.
And of course there’ll be plenty of tea, coffee and homemade cakes to keep you sewing.
