Lounge wear



Design and make your very own "work from home" outfit, loungewear or pjs! This course is a bundle of our three "Learn to sew" courses:
"Tops and T-shirts"
"Relaxed Trousers"
The course comes with a FREE Sewing machine crash course.

You will learn how to make simple patterns based on your own personal measurements, which means that EVERYBODY will make garments for their size! Once purchased, the course is available for life - we don't put any time restrictions, as we understand that everyone is learning in their own pace. All the videos can be watched as many times as needed.
The aim of the course is to give you an understanding of how patterns are made, how they can be adjusted and played around. I will show you how to make garments step by step, but it is on you to get creative and experiment!

READYMADE PATTERNS ARE NOT INCLUDED: the goal of the course is to teach you the basic principles of making your own patterns! Once you learn this, you'll realise that you don't need ready-made patterns.

If you have any questions or concerns, please click 'message the maker' first. There are no refunds after you have taken the course.

If you'd like to purchase a single module only (£45), please check our "Learn to sew" short courses by clicking 'More from this maker'.
