Join our Beginner’s Dressmaking classes taught by veteran (but definitely not old!) dressmaker Andrea Williams. You’ll start with a simple dressmaking project chosen for you from Andrea’s extensive collection and you will progress from there.
You will learn how to size and measure, how to prepare patterns, resize patterns, how to lay our dressmaking patterns in the most cost effective way and/or to the fabric and print that you have at hand, what fabrics to choose for your pattern, and how to make your garment. You’ll be mastering concealed zips, poppers, plackets, inserting sleeves, pockets and so much more.
There will be lots of hints, tips and laughs along the way and you’ll be dressmaking with confidence in no time.
Classes are every Tuesday 10am – 12.30pm and are on:
