An introduction to understanding dressmaking patterns. Come and sew this lovely Kimono style top by Salme Patterns, this simple loose fitting top a great wardrode staple, and a paper copy of the pattern is included in the price of the course, so you can make lots more at home. The pattern is suitable for UK sizes 4 to 20, if you need to make large just bring extra fabric and we can adjust.
We will also do a quick refresher on needle types, tension and when to use different presser feet. We will look a different ways to finish seams and making slight adjustments to the pattern.
You will need to bring with you 2 meters of fabric that drapes well, you are welcome to bring lightweight knit fabric, woven viscose, lightweight linens, and cottons would also be suitable. Do get in touch if you would like some links for suitable fabrics.
