Women's buttons are on the left side of garments because when button garments first came to be, only women with servants could afford to wear them. They were sewn on the left side to make it easier for servants to help these wealthy women dress.

Beginners Sewing Bootcamp

Fantastic sewing weekend - Im particularly proud of my skirt and love wearing it! Very well organised course and Arianna was smiley, helpful and patient throughout, even when I had to unpick several times... Highly recommended.
