About the Course

In this series of workshops you will learn to "read" a commercial pattern; what all the markings mean, how you transfer them to your fabric, how you adjust a pattern to your own size. We will deal with all the fitting issues you may have and then adjust the pattern accordingly and make a toile.Once we have a beautifully fitted mock up we will concentrate on cutting your final garment and stitching it up.

There will be a choice of patterns to make, I will email you when you book as you will need to decide which one you want to make before the class so I can order the patterns in.

The price for the whole course is £250 for 3 x 5 hour classes (or 6 x 2.5 hour classes) and which includes the use of machines, tools, threads, the pattern for you to take home, the fabric for your toile, but not the fabric for your final garment. We will discuss what you need at the first class. You may want to bring a notebook although there will be handouts in the form of my sewing handbook too.

This is a small group class (2-3 students)so there is plenty of one to one attention whilst learning in a fun unpressurized environment with and from other students.

You do not need to be a whizz on the machine, this class is fine to take after the beginners or zips class!

I have been teaching sewing classes for over 7 years, I am passionate about sewing and teaching and believe anyone can sew. My classes are small (maximum 3!) and friendly and held in my dedicated studio in my garden.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
