Daytime

Have you always wanted to try making your own clothes, but lacked the confidence or skill set to give it a go? Well, this is the class for you. Join this one-day intensive masterclass in dressmaking and you will soon be designing your own wonderfully personal wardrobe.

In this class

This class will use the Zinnia pattern to design and make a beautiful skirt in the fabric of your choice. Your esteemed teacher, Charlotte Newland, will teach you standard sewing terms and techniques that you will be bale to apply to other patterns.

This class will specifically cover:

  • Taking accurate measurements
  • Accurate cutting
  • Invisible zip insertion.

This pattern ranges from American sizes 0-18, and you will be able to find the measurements for those sizes on the Zinnia size chart. Unfortunately this class does not cater for sizes outside of this range.

This class is suitable for dressmakers of all experience, although it is required that you know how to use a sewing machine. Sewing machines and all tools will be provided.

Now you can

  • The sewing techniques and terms that you learn during the class can be applied to other patterns as you gain the confidence to sew your own clothes
  • Teach others the art of dressmaking and share your newly acquired skill set with others with an interest in designing clothes
  • Sign up to other Village Haberdashery classes and further your skills and techniques, as you become a proficient dressmaker

Did you know?

Ever wondered where the saying "the whole nine yards" comes from? Well, it actually originates from sewing, and comes from the ideal amount of fabric that was required to create a high-end men's fashion coat, back in the good ol' days!
