This Dressmaking course will teach you how to make your own unique clothes that fit perfectly. Or if you’ve already done a bit of dressmaking, then you can improve your techniques. I’ll coach you along the way in the following:

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
Sewing tips and techniques to achieve a professional finish
I’ve been dressmaking since I was at school. I’ve also studied Bridalwear and Tailoring so I’ve learned lots of tips and tricks that give your projects a polished look. During this Dressmaking course, I’ll be focussing on teaching you lots of professional tips and technique. So your clothes won’t look ‘Homemade’, but ‘Handmade’. No-one will believe you made them yourself.

A small class size (Maximum 4 students) ensure I’m able to give you lots of individual attention. Students work on their own choice of project, and I tailor your tuition accordingly.

You’ll need to bring your own pattern, fabric, matching thread, plus any interfacing, zips/buttons etc which are required to complete your project. You’ll possibly also need calico for making mock-up of the pattern to check the fit, and pattern-making paper. Please bring a basic sewing kit of fabric shears, sharp embroidery scissors and pins. If you’d prefer to make clothes for your children instead of yourself, then you can do this here too.

Level: Basic sewing skills required (You must be able to use a sewing machine confidently. Ideally you’ll have taken one of my Beginners Sewing Courses).

Additional Dates: 03 October 2018

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Dressmaking Course - Mornings are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
