Dressmaking (Start) - 6 weeks starts Thurs 21st Oct 7pm-9pm
Our most popular course by far! And now it's 6 weeks instead of 5 so if you are interested we definitely recommend signing up early.
Learn all the essentials that you need to kick start your dressmaking ambitions.
We focus primarily on fit - making sure that you understand what adjustments need to be made and how to do them before you even start cutting any fabric.
We cover a variety of techniques so that by the end of the course you'll know all the essentials that will help you in every dressmaking project.
You'll make a simple skirt or top (keeping it really simple means you can focus on learning the essential skills rather than worrying about the detail of a particular pattern at this stage). Also, that way, you will be in a position to have started on a 2nd garment by the end of the course.
Suitable for those with basic sewing machine skills. If you have struggled with dressmaking in the past and want to have another go; then this is the course for you too.
Dates: Thurs 21st and 28th Oct; 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th November.
Unable to make half term week? Don't worry, You can miss this week and finish on Thurs 2nd Dec - just let us know at the time of booking.
Time: 7pm - 9pm
Tutor: Pamela Tasker/Julie Miles
In the first week, we cover fabrics and patterns so it's best to wait until the course has started before buying any materials.
You can find an approved list of patterns here. You are welcome to purchase one of these in advance. If you use code SDM6 you will receive a 20% discount. If you want to use a different pattern to one of these, please discuss this with the tutor in the 1st week before buying it; to make sure that it is suitable.
