Who is it for?

This course is suitable for adults aged 19+ who can use a sewing machine and want to learn how to understand a dressmaking pattern and make a simple wrap skirt.

What will I learn?

This two-day, weekend course is a perfect introduction to making clothes. You will learn how to:

  • understand and use a commercial dressmaking pattern
  • use the grain of the fabric to pin a pattern correctly onto it
  • neatly cut out the garment and transfer markings
  • assemble the garment

What could I do after this?

You could start to make clothing as gifts or, as some of your tutor Lynn’s learners have done in the past, set up your own online shop with Etsy or similar websites. You could also progress on to further Patchwork, Quilting or Dressmaking courses with RALSS or other providers.
