Make a stylish dress - Advanced
This three lesson dressmaking course is designed for those who have made easy garments in the past and are ready to move to truly tailored garments using facings, invisible zips and learning how to set sleeves. You need to be able to confidently use a sewing machine, have already used commercial patterns and be familiar with sewing classic zips, button holes and rolled hems. Ideally, you would have already completed our Sew Capable course for intermediates. Areas we cover include:
All machines are provided. You will need to bring along:
Sizes 8 - 14
Sizes 16 - 18
You will learn to adjust your pattern to fit your body measurements, sew seams and darts, insert an invisible zip, attach a facing, setting sleeves, hemming and pressing. During the three lessons, you will be able to put your skills in place, complete the project from start to finish walking away with a new, ready to wear stylish Shift Dress.
You can buy fabric from us, we have a selection for £18 (available when booking the class). Refreshments and biscuits are included and a glass of wine for all evening classes to help create a seamless atmosphere.
