Course Description

Dressmaking Skills for Beginners

 

This course aims to equip you with the skills and experience to be able to make a garment of your own choosing from a commercially produced pattern by taking you step-by-step through the practical process.

 

Beginning with getting to know your sewing machine, and from your own level of experience, you will be taken through the initial stages of using the pattern to cut your fabric pieces, interpreting instructions, sewing different types of seams and darts, adapting the item to your size and shape, working with facings and waistbands, inserting zips, making buttonholes, linings and finishing tasks such as hems and binding.

 

The course will give you a foundation of skills and confidence to build on for your future  journey to becoming a versatile, adventurous and accomplished dressmaker!
