Hosted by Victoria, in this group you'll have the perfect place with dedicated time to create your me-made wardrobe. With no distractions... what could be better!
Dressmaking Club will run for 4 weeks during which time you can work on a project of your choice, or seek advice on what to make next. Each week will also have a mini-skills focus where Victoria will take a more detailed look at some essential dressmaking skills! This group is mixed level - if you are a complete beginner to dressmaking, we suggest that you begin with The Stevie Top/Tunic by Tilly and the Buttons in order that you can learn basic skills in pattern-cutting, fit and assembly with woven fabrics before progressing further. Please note, to allow for freedom of choice, no pattern is included in this class.
We are delighted to be able to welcome you to our refurbished studio! It is accessed 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.
When attending any class, we will meet you at the shop door 10mins before the start time. If you are running late and arrive to a closed front door, please walk down the side alley (Wilson's Close) to the signposted side entrance and ring the doorbell.
This group is not suitable for complete beginners to sewing as you must be able to fill a bobbin, thread a machine and sew with accurate straight seam allowance. If you are completely new to sewing, we suggest you try our Beginner Sewing Weekend.
However if you have a little machine sewing experience, you are ready to make your first garment and this workshop will be perfect for you! Please note our pattern suggestions above.
This class is suitable for adults only, age 16+.
Please carefully check our Terms & Conditions prior to booking.
