It's time to plan and create your handmade garments with style and fit advice from our fab dressmaking tutor, Victoria.
This group is mixed level, however if you are a complete beginner to dressmaking we recommend that you try our "Beginner Sewing or Dressmaking" class first. If you've made at least one simple garment and can understand a basic sewing pattern, then this improvers group would be ideal for you! If you need advice on what pattern/fabric to choose, please ask us in-store or bring your ideas to your first class! Equally, if you are more experienced and want those fit and fashion problems solved, then this is the place to find the help you need.
Please check here before booking as once purchased, tickets are non-refundable.
This group is mixed level, however you must be able to fill a bobbin, thread a machine and sew with an accurate straight seam allowance. Please see above.
If you are brand new to sewing altogether, we suggest you try one of our introductory sewing classes or get in touch to ask us for advice.
This class is suitable for adults only, age 16+.
- Professional instruction and inspiration with Victoria
- Printed copy of the sewing pattern
- Use of our Janome digital sewing machines, overlockers, cutting tables and studio equipment
- Endless encouragement and advice!
WHAT YOU'LL NEED TO BRING:
We are delighted to be able to welcome you to our refurbished studio! It is accessed from the main shop down a flight of stairs from the shop with alternative access direct to the basement for anyone requiring an entrance without steps. If you do have any accessibility needs or questions, please let us know in the comments when you book or drop us an email.
When attending any class, we will meet you at the shop front door 10 minutes before the start time. If you are running late and arrive to a closed front door, please go to the side alley (Wilson's Close) to the side entrance (with the bright pink door!) and ring the doorbell.
