Make a garment of your own choice that will enable you to improve your dressmaking techniques. Start with pattern adjustments and preparation, to ensure a good fit, then cutting and sewing your garment together. You will learn all methods needed to create your garment from transferring pattern markings, making full use of the pattern instructions through learning useful ways of achieving a professional finish.
Additional demonstrations of specific techniques such as inserting a concealed zip and applying facings will be included throughout the course. Some basic experience in using a sewing machine is needed for these classes. Separate tuition can be arranged for this if required.
