Description 10 week course
Join this class to have some precious time to learn or improve your dressmaking skills. You can choose what to make using a commercial pattern to work from and Lynn will help you with the very basics of learning to read the pattern, take body measurements, fitting and construction of your chosen garment.
Commercial patterns are not sized in the same way as the clothes you buy in the shops. Before making an expensive purchase take your bust, waist and hip measurement and use these as a guide to buy your pattern. Contact me if you are unsure or wait until the first class when we can discuss what you want to do.
For the first class, if you are confident with what you are doing, bring along your pattern, calico or inexpensive fabric which is a similar weight to your chosen fabric (for toile), fabric thread, sewing kit, and sewing machine.
If you are a little unsure bring along your ideas (images of patterns) you are considering, calico or inexpensive cotton dress weight fabric, sewing kit, and sewing machine.
