Dressmaking Workshop

Dressmaking/Finishing Days - no date at the moment

Like the weekly dressmaking courses this is aimed at those who wish to improve their dressmaking skills to achieve a more professional result or want to brush up on particular skills, but would like to set aside a full day rather than a weekly commitment. Whether its a prom/evening dress that you would like to make or another project that you would like to work on, we can cover concealed and ordinary zip placements, covered buttons, rouleux loop fastenings, covering cord for lacing, sleeve setting, interfacing and interlining as well as ironing out problems that you may have with your dressmaking.

If you have done a corset, bodice, speed tailoring or dressmaking workshop with me and haven't finished your project at home then this workshop could be a good follow up day for you to finish it off and perhaps start something new.

Following is a list of items that you will need to bring with you to the classes;

Please note:
Only glass or plastic large headed pins may be used for this course as they are easier to see when dropped on the floor. If you do not have large headed pins you can buy a pack from me on the day. Click
