Dressmaking and Garment Making
During this four-week course you can make a garment of your choice, bring along your pattern and fabric and learn all the skills you need. This course is suitable for all abilities – if you are a beginner our tutor will take you through the whole process from how to read the pattern, to how to cut your fabric (accurately!), as well learning the skills such as darts, hems and inserting zips. Those with sewing experience can learn new skills and techniques to take your sewing to another level.

Equipment Required

Sewing machine
You will be provided with a Husqvarna Viking sewing machine to use during the class. Please note we cannot guarantee specific models.

Basic sewing equipment, to include:

If you already have a project in mind and have the fabric (and if required, a pattern) then bring these with you. If you don’t have a project in mind the teacher will happy to help and advise you. Dressmaking and patchwork fabrics, along with all your other sewing requirements, are available to purchase in the shop with a 10% discount.

If you are attending a dressmaking class you will require a pattern. We stock Simplicity, Tilly and the Buttons, Poppy and Jazz, The Avid Seamstress, Quality Textiles and Sewgirl patterns.
