Further dressmaking skills

Bookable individually, these dressmaking skills development classes are suitable for those who already have some dressmaking or crafting experience, but wish to develop their skills. These classes are not suitable for complete beginners, who should book my “No Fears, No Failures” courseThe object is to create sample work that participants can refer to during future dressmaking projects. These classes will be fast-paced and will require accurate machine stitching and some hand-sewing. To get most out of the day, participants should bring their own sewing machine.
