Five session class


Spend 5 relaxed evenings just off Brick Lane learning to sew with Fashion Antidote. All abilities are welcome and everything you'll need is provided so just turn up and master that crucial life skill!

In this class

During this class your expert instructor will start with the basics, so no matter what your experience level, you'll feel confident before moving on to anything more challenging.

To begin with your guide will show you what all the different parts of the sewing machine do along with how to set up your machine the right way including how to choose the correct needles and threads, how to wind the bobbin, the correct way to thread the machine and also how to adjust the tension. You will then cover some basic stitches, seams and how to finish off any tricky rough edges before moving on to some more advanced techniques such as facings, darts and using zips within your designs.

Towards the end of the five weeks, you will cover some of the more advanced skills, which you will need in order to make clothes, such as gathers, frills, hems and machined buttonholes.

Now you can

  • sew a wide variety of different stitches
  • use your new skills to adjust clothes which don't fit or even to make new clothes from scratch
  • show off your handiwork to friends and family, while they conceal their inevitable envy at your skills

Did you know?

The phrase "the whole nine yards" is said be derived from early 1700s tailoring. The upper classes at the time went to great excess, and nine yards of single fold fabric was the amount required to make a good three-piece suit.
