DRESSMAKING ~ Become Pattern Confident. We are thrilled to have Louise take this class, her years of experience and knowledge, as well as her passion and patient manner, will bring you more confident in your sewing abilities.
Is this class for you?
- have you tried making garments from patterns unsuccessfully
- unable to decipher what the pattern and instructions are asking you to do
- unconfident in choosing a size and the fabric for patterns
- would like to learn basic skills to achieve greater results
- have sewn for years but first time (or getting back into since school!) trying your hand a dressmaking
What you need to take:
- The pattern you wish to make
- Required fabric – if you are struggling, we can help you choose in advance of your class.
- Matching thread
You will have 10% discount for items purchased for this class from The Wee Fabric Shop
The class will be a relaxed format, where you can freely ask as many questions and for help as you sew along. With the 5 weeks of sessions we are aiming for you to finish your garment. You can arrange homework, where you can sew at home inbetween times, to help with progress. If you do finish your garment before the course finishes you can start on a second garment. This is not speed sewing, it’s relaxed so you feel under no pressure,
During your sessions Louise demonstrates techniques, which can be shirt collar, concealed zip, buttonholes etc – depending on you and your fellow students requirements.
Skill Level: Confident beginner, you will have been expected to have used a sewing machine, and sewn a few things, if you’ve been to our classes before you should have basic knowledge. If you’re unsure please talk to us, we want to make sure the class is right for you.
