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.

  • Notions for making your skirt (interfacing and snap fasteners)
  • Kym’s expert guidance and company for the day 🙂

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 makethelakes@gmail.com. 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.
