Beyond Beginners Dressmaking Course

So you’ve made a couple of easier projects and you’re ready to take your sewing to the next level – Beyond Beginners will help you to do just that!

This course takes place once a week over 8 weeks and will cover some more technical aspects of dressmaking. We will be using these gorgeous Merchant and Mills Patterns to make a very stylish pair trousers with a zip and a very wearable dress or top with a collar. Some of the techniques you will learn along the way include:

  • using a dressmaking pattern

  • adjusting your pattern for a better fit

  • how to cut your fabric

  • creating seams and hems

  • making darts and pleats
  • inserting a zip

  • adding buttons and button holes

  • adding a collar
  • creating a neck facing
  • adding pockets
  • and much more!

You will need to be able to use a sewing machine and have a couple of projects under your belt already. If you need to learn to sew then you could sign up for the Absolute Beginners class first, and then the Beginners Dressmaking Course.

Sewing patterns, use of all equipment and as much tea and coffee as you can drink are all included. You will just need to provide your own fabric and thread. More details will follow once you have booked your place.

If you would prefer to work on different patterns then please do get in touch to discuss – I’m sure I’ll be able to accommodate.
