Tue 27th Feb, 6th, 20th & 27th Mar (9.30 – 14.30)
The perfect course for you if you’d like to get your head round working with commercial dressmaking patterns. We will start by taking accurate measurements and learning to decipher the packet details! Move on to looking at what sizes will actually fit you and how we can adapt a commercial pattern to fit if you have a larger bust or a narrower waist than the measurements on the packet.
During the course you will make a pair of Pyjama bottoms with an elasticated waist, a sleeveless top with half lining and darts to shape and a skirt of your choice. (You can choose between A-Line, Gathered or full circle) The skirt will have a fitted waistband and invisible zip whichever option you choose.
This class is suitable for complete beginners or improvers and is limited strictly to only 4 pupils. Over 18 hours of tuition you will leave the studio with 3 finished and fitting garments.
Pupils will need to provide their own fabric for each garment, patterns will be provided for you to keep so that you can re-create the garments. A PDF sheet will be sent to you on booking with all the requirements for the course. There may be an element of homework between classes such as tracing patterns and cutting paper. Please bring a packed lunch as there will be a short 30 minute break. Tea and Coffee will be provided.
