About the Course

Courses are aimed at students who are 19 years and over, you are a beginner and would like to learn the basic skills involved in dressmaking. Students would be required to bring a commercial pattern (easy to medium ability), with the required fabric and thread, also if you would like to bring your own sewing machine along to get hands-on experience in using it, you may do so. Basic sewing skills would be of benefit, please get in touch for more details.

Our tutor will guide you through the making process, from cutting and laying of the pattern pieces to key construction techniques, such as, how to stitch darts, put in sleeves, sewing zips and adding buttons, resulting in a completed garment. We have a course information sheet if you would like more details, just contact Sue on the details provided.

Our course runs on a Monday evening for 5 weeks and is repeated throughout the year - get in touch for more details.
