Clothes Making from a Pattern/Sewing Weekend course

Do you long to make your own clothes but find it difficult to follow a pattern? This weekend course will give you the skills to make your own unique garment from start to finish. You will select your own pattern and fabric and learn step by step from pattern cutting and making a toile through to the importance of hand finishing. You will be able to learn about different materials, design and patterns. Alternatively you can spend the whole weekend immersing yourself in sewing & bring along any projects that you would like to do!

Suggested areas you will learn:

  • How to follow & cut a pattern
  • Make a toile
  • Take accurate measurements
  • Make alterations (if required)
  • Pin & cut the fabric
  • Add darts, pleats, zip and buttons
  • Accessorise for individuality (if time)

Additional Costs: You will need to provide a 'Very Easy' simple clothes pattern, ideally; Simplicity, Butterick or New Look (one item please) or an independent pattern (Tilly, Sew Over It etc) . This is two day course so please do not bring anything too complex as you will not have time to finish. You will also need to bring the specified fabric quantity (usually shown on the reverse of the pattern) or bring along some existing projects you wish to complete.  Tools and refreshments are included in the price.

Please note:  The course runs over a weekend  Saturday 23rd & Sunday 24th October 2021 10-4.30pm. Some hand sewing may need to be done at home.
