If you have had a go on our sewing machines taster class or have made something on a machine in the recent past and would like to improve your skills and start dress making then this 6 week class is for you! This is not a beginners class, you need to be able to use your sewing machine to take this course. If you need a refresher course, why not take one of our Sewing Machine Taster courses to brush up on skills….
During the course of the session we will cover:
- different seams and finishing techniques
- how to set in a sleeve and collar
- pattern terminology explained
- how to accurately take measurements and work out your pattern size.
- We will advise you on fabric choices etc….
We will then cut out and make a coat for you to wear. The class will have a maximum of 6 and we work on techniques to try out before you make your actual garment. Handouts given. You are welcome to bring your own machine to use while in class or use one of ours, do let us know at the time of booking.
Please note that there is a £10.00 material charge to cover the pattern and interfacing etc required. Please make this payment in cash to the tutor.
Dates for the course are:
April 18th, 25th, May 2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd.
