Information - Dressmaking – Single Day Class

This one-day class will give you the perfect introduction to dressmaking. If you are trying to get started with a project, but need a bit of a boost to get going then this class is just what you need to build your confidence.

We will teach you everything you need to know to get started including:

  • how to correctly understand a pattern booklet
  • accurately measure yourself
  • choose a size
  • trace your pattern
  • grade/adjust for height where necessary

Then we will teach you some of the basic sewing techniques you will need to use when making your own clothing including:

  • sewing accurate seam allowances
  • how to finish your seams
  • layer, clip and press seams
  • insert a zipper/sew a buttonhole

Feel free to join us for one session, or come back for further sessions, it’s entirely up to you. If you would like some help picking a suitable pattern and fabric, then our staff in the Ipswich store will be more than happy to help guide you. A simple pattern is best for this class if you want to get it finished within the day. If you cannot finish on the day then your tutor will talk you through the rest of the pattern to help you proceed at home, alternatively you can book back on to another class to complete your work under guidance.
