Children’s clothes are perfect for honing your dressmaking skills… and they are so cute to make!

This class will teach you how to read a dressmaking pattern, choose the correct size, cut your fabric and stitch a girl’s dress.

It incorporates lots of skill and techniques that are excellent learning practice for making adult-sized garments.

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. It is also perfect for those who have completed a few dressmaking projects already and wish to enhance their skills.

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.

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 Likewise, if you do not have your own machine, there may be the option to hire one during the workshop. Please check before booking whether a machine would be available for you to use.
