In this workshop, we will take a simple shape, make a toile and then fit it to be right for you. Then we will transfer the amendments onto the pattern for you to be able to make it again at home. These principles will be ones that you can apply to all your dressmaking.
You will be measured at the beginning of the day so please wear a thin underlayer ¬†so that this can be done easily.
There will be a choice of different patterns to work with. You will not make a wearable dress on the day – but you will have a toile and a pattern that is fitted to you.
To get the most out of the day it would be good to have used a pattern a few times and to be familiar with sewing on a machine.
Please bring your own machine and a few items of clothing that you feel fit you particularly well.
Coffee and cake plus one pattern is included in the ticket price along with 10% discount off any patterns/dressmaking books you are inspired to buy on the day.
