Description:

I first spoke to Angela about designing a dressmaking course back in October of last year. Angela and I worked together many years ago when I was running my digital embroidery business and Angela was running her bridalwear business in Cardiff. We bumped into each other again about a year ago and have been chatting about running this exciting course for over six months (that’s how long it takes to get a unique course like this one designed and prepared, so thank you for your patience).

Angela says: “My ambition is for all those attending the course is to become confident THINKING garment constructors. From understanding the decisions made during the construction of this fabulous coat and then completing the processes yourself, you will gain a real insight into the WHYS of garment construction. Combining the answers to these questions with top tips to achieve a professional finish I hope you will become FEARLESS garment constructors!

This is a content filled course so it is for those who have either made several garments previously and/or are comfortable using a sewing machine. If you haven’t made many garments yet then you could make a couple over the course of the summer. These garments do not need to be complicated but enough to ensure you feel comfortable handling part made garments and using your sewing machine.

If I say so myself… I ADORE the versatility of this coat! In its simplest form it is a classic flared coat but add the belt and detachable bolero and it becomes a classic trench.”
