Loved the classes and learnt how to fit to my exact size. Made a great skirt and am now able to make my own with confidence. Will be going back for more!

The dressmaking course is fantastic with Rachel giving such clear and useful advice throughout. I was particularly delighted to learn how to adapt patterns to fit me exactly and came away with my lovely skirt, a pattern fitted to me that I will use many times and skills that I will continue to use. Thank you Craft my Day!
Looking forward to seeing you at the dress and trouser sessions.
