Fri 21st & Sat 22nd Sept (9.30 – 17.00)
Spend 2 whole days at BTHQ learning to make a beautiful summer dress custom made to fit you perfectly. You can choose between a classic sleeveless tea dress with a full circle skirt or dress with a pleated or gathered waist and long or short sleeves. We will work together before your class to help you choose the perfect commercial pattern for the style of dress you want to make.
Here are some of the techniques you will learn, this will obviously vary from pattern to pattern.
You will learn to take accurate measurements, handle the pattern, cut out your fabric, transfer markings and then move onto sewing your bodice, learning different dart types for shaping, lining and zip insertion and then finishing with a skirt and joining the two together to create a stunning dress.
Your course fee includes all tuition, use of machines and threads. Pupils will be required to provide the pattern and fabric for their chosen dress which will be between 2-3 metres depending on you size and choice of dress.
The full fee for this class is £145 but you are welcome to pay in instalments should you wish. We ask for a £25 deposit at the time of booking followed by the balance paid in instalments and to be paid off no later than 4 weeks before the start of your course.
