This is a perfect weekend course for beginners to Dressmaking. You will need to have completed either the one day Tote Bag or 6 week beginners course to take on this course.You will learn the basic skills in understanding a commercial pattern and all the jargon so you can successfully construct your first garment.
On the Saturday we will be making a simple skirt which will teach you how to insert darts, an invisible zip, a waistband and using interfacing.
The Sunday we will be making a simple shift dress - perfect for summer and to advance your sewing a little further by learning facings.
Guided by us you will leave confident that you can add to your handcrafted wardrobe some beautiful pieces.
The course costs £170.00 which includes your pattern but not materials or fabric, as we know that everyone has different tastes and styles. You are welcome to bring your own fabric if you ask us how much you will need to buy beforehand, or purchase something lovely from our store.
