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. 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.
We will cover lots of tips and sewing technique including:
- How to understand a commercial dressmaking pattern

- How to sew binding
- How to sew a hem
- How to insert a zip

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 you can purchase some at our workshop.
