At The Make it Room we usually run regular six week dressmaking and/or sewing courses for beginners and more proficient sewers. Owing to the recent COVID pandemic, this has been more difficult to organise so for the moment we are booking sessions on a week to week basis, as we are operating with a reduced number of learners. Individual sessions are available too. If you would like to make a booking please email.
During the course,we will cover how to use and understand commercial patterns. Starting with pyjama trousers, we will make a top and move on to a project of your choice. You will have the patterns to take home with you for the first two projects and you will choose and buy your own pattern for a dress/skirt etc . You will need to bring along fabric for each of the items. The clothes pictured here have all been made in our courses.
If you have made some clothes before and have found sewing patterns mystifying, or if you have completed our beginner's dressmaking and would like to make more advanced clothes why not join us and we can help with alternative projects too.
If you would like to make a booking, please get in touch via email, it is not possible for us to list dates at present owing to the continuing Coronavirus pandemic as places are limited - so we are booking on a week by week basis
This course is suitable for beginners or those with a little sewing experience. Tackle a different project each week, bring along your fabric and learn lots of sewing basics. We will make cushions, make up bags, patchwork, applique and tote bags.
Bring along your fabric each week and we will help you transform it into something beautiful.
