Course Description

Dressmaking Skills for Beginners

You’ll learn how to make an open and closed seam and sew curves and corners and sew edges and top-stitching. You will sew a simple dart, insert a concealed zip, attach a facing, make a hem and a button hole. You will also learn how to choose a commercial pattern, lay a pattern on fabric and cut out and mark, ready to sew. By the end of the day you will have gained enough skills to make a simple garment on your own.

 

You are encouraged to bring some basic sewing equipment such as scissors, needles, pins, tape measure, etc. There are sewing machines available, however please feel free to bring along your own.

 

All fabric, cotton and zips will be provided.
