new and revised classes
SEW PATTERNS has been designed to give an introduction to dressmaking patterns and SEW DAY has been modified so that it is now just a sewing day… turns out we needed more time to sew!! You can now choose what you need more help with… the cutting out or the sewing together. If you come to just a SEW DAY, the cutting out of the fabric pieces must be done before you arrive.
SEW PATTERNS – MORNING SESSIONS
It will take place on either a Monday or Thursday morning from 10am till 1pm. Due to space, this class can have a maximum of three students.
Please have a look at the BOOKINGS page for dates
On a SEW PATTERNS session, you will learn how to cut out a simple pattern. I will explain how to work out your size, calculate fabric amount and type, and make simple alterations to the pattern. With my help you will cut out your paper pattern, pin it onto some ‘practise’ fabric and cut out the fabric pieces.
SEW DAY – ONE DAY DRESSMAKING CLASS
SEW DAY is only available to those who have completed a SEW BASIC Course or attended a PRIVATE LESSON with me. It would be a good idea to attend a SEW PATTERNS session prior to the SEW DAY.
Please have a look at the BOOKINGS page for dates.
On the SEW DAY, I will guide you through the process of making up your sewing pattern. This needs to be cut in the fabric BEFORE the SEW DAY. If you need help to cut out your fabric pattern pieces you can book a PRIVATE LESSON or a SEW PATTERNS session with me.
SEW DAY starts at 9.30am and finishes around 5.30pm, with one hour off for lunch. There are lots of cafe’s near by if you like to stretch your legs!
