What we’ll do

In this 12 hour course we'll zip through all of the essential techniques you'll use time and time again in dressmaking. From measuring your body and making alterations to demystifying pattern terminology, and of course constructing a garment. At each step, we'll run through multiple options for each technique: different seam finishes, zips and hems. You'll see there's never just one way to do…

What else you should know

Before the class please let us know your dress size you usually wear (just on the bottom half). We will be measuring you on the first day, it's just so we have a rough idea.

What I’ll provide

Coffee, Tea and Water
teas, coffee and water and biscuits provided.
Equipment
All the equipment you will need.

What to bring

We have a selection of fabrics and trims in the studio which you can purchase for a donation towards our tea and cake fund. If you would like to bring your own fabric you will need at least 1.5m. A mediumweight woven is ideal, this skirt will not work in
You will also need a zip - we have some in the studio but you may want to source one to match your fabric. A 10" invisible zip is the best thing to buy.
We will have an hour lunch break both days so you may wish you bring your own lunch, or there are cafes and shops in the local area that we can point you towards.

Where you'll be

Learn to sew in our Brockley based studio, a tranquill space at the bottom of our garden. It's a great way to relax and unwind, make new creative friends and you can become part of the growing Make Mee Community.
