Absolute Beginners Dressmaking - 20th October 2018 - Stony Stratford

 

 

Course Outline

Beginners Dressmaking - Shift Dress or Classic shift top


A great introduction to dressmaking for those just starting out sewing.  This workshop is suitable for complete beginners as well as those who can already thread up a machine and sew but are new to dressmaking.

We will look at how to use commercial sewing patterns, how to complete a range of dressmaking techinques.  We will also look at how to select the right needle and fabric for your project.

For this class we will all follow the same basic pattern which will be provided.

You will need to bring with you fabric of your choice. For this pattern the following woven fabrics are recommended.  We would suggest woven cottons or woven viscose fabrics as they are great for beginners.  We would recommend you bring 3 meters of fabric that is 150cm wide or 4 meters that is 120cm wide for the dress version and 1/2 meter less if you plan to make a top or tunic top version.   

Do drop us a line or call us if you would like some help with choosing your fabric, hello@sandpipersewing.co.uk, or tel 01908 330020

If you have your own sewing machine we would recommend that you bring it along, if you don't have a machine you can use one of ours just let us know when you book that you require a machine to use.
