Improver’s Dressmaking

Date of next course to be confirmed

This 6 week course is aimed at dressmakers with sound experience of basic garment construction. The course does not lead to a finished garment as it is designed to enable confident sewers to build up a portfolio of more advanced dressmaking methods that you can then refer to when sewing solo without tutor guidance in the years ahead!  

HOWEVER I am happy for students to make a garment at home and bring it in for fittings and general advice during the course.

The techniques which are covered include:

  • Flat, Mandarin and 2-piece collars;
  • A variety of ways of making openings;
  • A variety of pocket construction methods including welt and jetted pockets;
  • Bindings and Pipings and their uses;
  • Other methods by request.

Tuition fee is £99.00 for 6 sessions including some materials.

The course is being held at The Old School Rooms, Station Road, Congresbury BS49 5DY or if only a small group at my home sewing studio.
