Intro to Dressmaking: PJ Bottoms


Date: Friday 19th November 2021

Time: 9.30am – 3pm

Venue: The Old Dairy, Muncaster Castle

Join Kym for a day of dressmaking and learn how to make a pair of comfy PJ bottoms!

Learning to make your own clothes is such a rewarding skill. You can achieve the perfect fit and have a totally unique item to wear with pride!

In this workshop, you will learn how to read a commercial dressmaking pattern and apply all that knowledge to make your pyjama bottoms.

We will work through the pattern step by step, taking measurements, cutting out, sewing seams, making pockets, and finishing with a neat hem.

You will leave the workshop with your amazing new PJ bottoms, the pattern (to make them in every colour!), and all the knowledge and confidence to sew more clothes at home!

SKILL LEVEL: This is a beginner dressmaking workshop for those who are new to dressmaking (or needing a refresher) however, you should already know how to use your sewing machine. If you are new to using a sewing machine but are interested in this class, please contact Kym for some more information. Get in touch here or by emailing

You will need to bring your sewing machine, the fabric, matching thread and drawstring (optional) for your pj bottoms. All other materials and tools will be provided. Please bring a packed lunch (or this can be ordered as an extra after booking if you prefer).

Depending on how quickly you sew, there may be a little finishing off to do at home. You will leave with all the knowledge you need to continue if this is the case. Or you may be super speedy and have time to start a second pair!

Need to borrow a sewing machine for the workshop? We have a limited number of machines that can be hired for the duration of the workshop. Please get in touch before booking to check availability.

Please Note: The pattern we will be working with is graded for waist measurements 56cm – 106.5cm (22″ – 42″) and hip measurements 79cm – 129.5cm (31″ – 51″). Unfortunately, if your measurements fall outside this range, this workshop may not be suitable for you.
