Children's Summer Dress workshop



Have you always wanted to learn a specific technique or to make a textile item on a sewing machine but never quite knew how? Or perhaps you want to have a go on a sewing before you commit to buying one? Holly can help.

As well as 10 years sewing experience Holly also has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Textiles. Holly successfully runs her online business and has customers all over the world and has featured in national home interior magazines. Her workshop in based in North Somerset where she runs sewing workshops for all ages including children 8+ with a parent/carer.

Girls summer dress (ages 6months-4years old) please allow 3hr 30mins max. £55 includes all fabric and your very own pattern piece.

You will learn how to follow a commercial pattern piece, how to pattern cut, understand the different terms and techniques, button holes, hemming, seams and so much more! You must know how to confidently thread a sewing machine, this will not be shown to you. Total beginner lessons also offered. All sessions are 1-1 to insure you get the most out of it and are able to ask questions and have my help and guidance throughout. By the end of your workshop you will go away with a finished dress, pattern pieces and step by step instructions so you can go away and make again!

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

What's included in the price?

Sewing Machine (can be provided if you don't have one), all pattern pieces, resources and materials to use on the day, refreshments. You are welcome to bring your own fabric (price is deducted - see prices above) if not I have plenty to pick from.

Dressmaking sessions are 1-1 only due to space reasons and I want you to get the most out of it and are able to ask questions throughout. Even after the workshop is finished I am more than happy to offer online support to help you on your dressmaking journeys!

My session with Holly was both instructive and encouraging. Hollys' calm patient approach to teaching me, a beginner, was exceptional especially when I managed to cut out a wrong piece. I managed to produce a lovely dress which has inspired me to continue with my machine. Highly recommend.

Response from Holly Edwards Textiles:

Thankyou so much Sarah 🥰
