This course is designed for those with basic sewing skills who want to move into dressmaking.
Learn how to follow a commercial sewing pattern, understand pattern terminology, take measurements and make adjustments. We will teach you how to put in an invisable zip, set in sleeves, make and use bias binding or a facing, create darts and finishings.
This simple shift dress is comfy and wearable, with bust and back darts to give shape and an invisible zip to fasten. The course is run by our resident seamstress Sabina, who has a wealth of sewing experience that she is ready to share.
On the first week you will need to purchase your pattern which we supply at a reduced price of £10 plus your fabric and a set of pins. We provide sewing machines, dressmaking scissors and any other tools needed.
We offer 10% off all fabric in the shop and are happy to advise on fabric choices.
