In this 12 hour course we will zip through all of the essential techniques you'll use time and time again in dressmaking. From measuring your body and making alterations to demystifying pattern terminology, and of course constructing a garment.

We'll be working on making a skirt so you can see the magic of the techniques come together to make a finished and wearable item, as well as a sample book of extra techniques. You don't have to make the skirt for yourself, but please bring the measurements you require.

Beginners Dressmaking

Jaime and Tracey at Make Mee Studio are teaching my daughters to sew - the girls absolutely love making something new every week and are very keen to further develop their skills. Highly recommended!
