What happens in this class?

We all have a favourite item of clothing don't we? Whether it's something we get complimented on every time we wear it, or it's the best fitting comfiest thing you can find... and aren't you just terrified of it wearing out one day? Or wish you had it in more colours?

Make Mee Studio were inspired by the lovely student in the photos you can see in the gallery, to develop this class who they helped to copy this slinky number. They have nicknamed it 'The Sexy Dress', and the student has already made it in…

Really welcoming and informative workshop. Josh & Amelia where on hand throughout and able to help everyone individually as well as lead the group as a whole. I left with patterns for two garmets which I can't wait to make at home. Brilliant.
Claire Russell - 20 March 2022

Friendly, expert advice.

This class was enjoyable and instructive; it was really interesting to analyse the construction of a garment with help from the skilled tutors, and to learn how to make a pattern so I can recreate my own version.

Great class! Thanks for explaining everything so well. Looking forward to making my first pair of trousers x

I had only ever taken clothes apart to make a pattern and found the course extremely helpful as to how to keep a garment and still copy it. Jaime gave us lots of tips and hints and worked with everyone to help them develop at their own pace. She also gave guidance on fabrics, fixings and the plan for making the garment as well as making the pattern. An excellent session .

We had a lovely day with Jamie, who was patient, positive and very knowledgeable! The venue was bright and comfortable and we are going back for more classes!

I have not done any sewing for a few years - well decades! - and wanted to make a pattern from one of my favourite tops - so decided to look for a class. I was recommended Make Mee studios and I have now been to the 'copy your clothes' class, and several sewing surgeries on Thursday lunchtimes. I have enjoyed myself so much and learnt a great deal from Jaime and Tracey! I have met other sewers too - and had great cake! And made myself a fabulous new top! I highly recommend them

Very useful session. Useful tips and the group was small so we each got a lot of help with our own projects.
