Beginners sewing: leggings - overlocker



You will learn to use the overlocker / serger machine correctly with stretch fabrics. You will also have the opportunity to use the coverstitch machine to hem and finish off your leggings, or use a zigzag stitch on a domestic machine.

We have leggings patterns for size XS - XXL

Suitable fabrics:
Stretch jersey, scuba, lycra
If you are a complete beginner, do not get a fabric that is too thin, or it will curl up when trying to sew. Sequinned, embellished and velvet fabrics are not suitable for this workshop, or beginners.

What do I need to bring?
Bring along 2 metres of stretch jersey or lycra, go as bold and bright as you like!
Not suitable for sequinned, velevt, beaded or silky, soft fabrics. Remember your fabric must be STRETCH fabric.

Do I need to provide information before the day?
No, just book your place and turn up on the day!

Please note: Doors close 15 minutes after the start time on all workshops.
We do ask our attendees to be on time. As we will not be able to go over missed content, health and safety once missed. We have had an issue with a lot of people all arriving at different times, which disrupts the teaching, leaves us with less time to teach, and not completing the workshop. Which in turn, leaves us with complaints from people who have arrived on time. Therefore, we are very strict with our door closing policy.

Workshop duration
This is a 2 hour workshop.

Age restrictions
This workshop is suitable for 14 years and above. All students under the age of 17, must be accompanied by a participating adult

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
