About the Course

Skill Level: Beginner - This workshop requires you to have
NO existing dressmaking knowledge but you must be able to use a sewing machine.

What you will learn & make:
Understand how to read dress pattern instructions, how to layout & cut out pattern pieces & an abundance of dress making techniques such as creating seams, hems, elastic casings, attaching facings, overcasting, understitching and set in pockets. The timings of this workshop should enable you to leave with a finished product but each person will work at a different pace so please be aware you may have tasks to complete at home to finish your garment.
