Introduction to Dressmaking Patterns & Know Your Fabrics

We've combined two of our great starter dressmaking sessions into one fantastic workshop to get you started on the path to successful dressmaking!

We will show you how to begin working with dressmaking patterns: measuring correctly for your body size (the sizings on dressmaking patterns differ from brand to brand, and rarely matches any high street sizing), choosing the right fabric for the pattern, and laying and cutting correctly.

We'll look at different types of fabric, when to use them and give you lots of tips to cope with some of the trickier sorts.

A great intro recommended for anyone who is new, or returning to dressmaking after some time. You'll go away dying to get started on a project!
