Would you love to learn how to make your own clothes or for your family, but don’t know where to start? Then this is the best place to start your fashion sewing journey.
On this course I will show you how to read, interpret and alter the pattern and take you through each step of sewing your skirt so that you leave with a beautiful skirt made especially to your measurements. You will gain the knowledge and skill to do it again by applying the principals learnt during the four weeks.
We will break about half way through each session for refreshments and cake, as sewing is thirsty work for mind and body therefore it’s only natural that there will be plenty of tea, coffee and cake to keep us going!
