New Dressmaking master class with Anna

Wow, May is here! Here’s a bit more info about a new 4 week evening class I’ve got starting at Millie Moon Shop, before silly summer season kicks in……

The classes are aimed at improving dressmakers, those who are a bit rusty and need a refresher, those who have a project on the go and need help fine tuning their skills to get a good finish, or those who are between projects and want to refine their skills before taking on something new (that’s about everyone covered then!!) Book a single evening if you can’t make them all for £20 or all 4 for £60 – bargain.

Night 1 – Tues 16th May – Paper patterns – Where to start, how to read, measure, what fabric, laying out, cutting and making, everything you need to know to get set to sew.

Night 2 – Tues 23rd May – Zips and Buttonholes – master regular zips, concealed zips and buttonholes – make a sample of each for reference, notes with photos included.

Night 3 – Tues 30th May – Hems, Finishing touches and a mini machine service! – Binding, edge finishes and lots of different hems to look at/make samples of, plus a little bit on how to maintain your machine.

Night 4 – Tues 6th June – Stretch fabrics – another challenge, try out sewing stretch fabrics with and without an overlocker, more sample making for your collection.

Each evening runs from 6-8pm, tea and biscuits are provided, just bring a notebook/folder for notes (a few materials are needed along the way, but are all available on the night.) Any questions shout.
