About the Course

Creative types and fashion aficionados can extend their thread of knowledge with a day of dressmaking in groups of up to ten. This six-hour class offers tuition in techniques for constructing a dress using a commercial pattern, as well as adding fastenings such as a concealed or regular zip.

The Fashion Box is a textile treasure trove of fabric design and made-to-measure clothing services. Bespoke ideas can come to fruition for theatrical, bridal and menswear needs. Tuition, such as this fantastic workshop, is also offered for pattern-cutting and sewing, and the studio can be found a short walk from Seven Sisters tube station.

Experience includes:
All fabrics and zips included, just bring yourselves! (....and maybe a packed lunch, or there are cafes and Sainsbury's nearby)
Fun, creative workshop with dressmaking experts
Meet other creative types

We do advise that workshoppers complete Intro to Sewing first, or have been on a sewing machine before.
