Absolute Beginners Dressmaking - 12 May 2018 - Stony Stratford

 

Date:  12th May 2018

 

Time: 12:30am - 4:30pm

 

Location:
Room 2.3 York House, London Road, Stony Stratford, Milton Keynes, MK11 1JQ

 

Course Outline
A great introduction to dressmaking for those just starting out sewing.  This workshop is suitable for complete beginners to machine sewing and those who can already thread up 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 such as buttonholes, zips and darts.  We will also look at how to select the right needle and fabric for your project.

We will focus on looking at techniques in this class rather than completing a garment.

You will need to bring with you a pattern and some fabric to start.  I would suggest using cotton or woven viscose for your first project as it is easier to sew with.  The pattern you select will tell you which fabrics it is suitable for. 

If you would like any help choosing your pattern feel free to get in touch and we an help.    

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.

Tea/Coffee and biscuits will be provided.

Cost  £40
