Evening Dressmaking Course

A block of five evening sessions where you will learn how to follow a dressmaking pattern and make an item of clothing of your choice (it doesn't have to be a dress!) guided by our expert dressmaker. We will give what help you need at each stage, whether you are a complete dressmaking beginner and just starting your exciting journey in making your own clothes, or whether you have some dressmaking experience and would like to further your skills.

You will need to bring your own pattern, fabric, thread and notions to this course. We have eight wonderful Brother sewing machines to use for this course, so you don't need to lug your machine here each week (unless you want to, of course!). We will also supply a sewing kit to use in the class (scissors, measuring tape, etc), so you have everything  you need to make a fabulous garment.

We sell patterns and fabric at the Craft Centre, so if you want advice on suitable projects to begin with, please come and visit and we can help you find something suitable.
