DRESSMAKING FOR BEGINNERS – Spring Term – Monday evenings


Develop your sewing skills and learn how to make your own clothes using a commercial pattern. To start, you will be taught how to thread up a sewing machine, and sew a variety of basic and more decorative seams.
The course will then take you through the whole process of making a garment, including adapting patterns to your shape; sewing darts, pleats and seams; inserting zips; stitching hems; and more.
Overlocking machines are also available for your use.
In addition to the course fees, students will be required to purchase their own material, pattern and sewing sundries.

Tutor: Jo Bunner. This course will run on a Monday evening, 1800-2100


This course is for complete beginners to dressmaking or those with some sewing experience. No previous sewing experience is required.
