BEGINNER DRESSMAKING

A six-week course

 

Making your clothes is possible, absolutely!

Maybe ready to wear fashion leaves you frustrated with fit? 

Or you have a strong personal style and would love to recreate your favourite outfits? 

Sewing your own clothes will change everything about the way you get dressed. 

 

My dressmaking courses are designed to give you strong foundations and transferrable skills to set you on the path to a handmade wardrobe.

 

What you'll make:

  • The Camber Set from Merchant and Mills. A timeless wardrobe staple that you'll love revisiting through the seasons with different fabrics.

  • The pattern can be made into a top, a tunic or a dress.

 

 

 

Start dreaming up your own version with some inspiration and suitable fabrics!

 


 


What you'll learn:
 

  • How to take your body measurements and select the right size

  • How to prepare your pattern and make it work for you

  • How to identify suitable fabrics and build confidence sourcing them

  • How to use a commercial pattern

  • Techniques to sew darts, sleeves and hem for a professional finish

This sounds like a good fit?
