Two session workshop
It's one thing to use a pattern to make a dress, but it's another to fit that dress to your unique body shape. In this West Hampstead class for advanced beginners, master fitting techniques to help you end up with a gorgeous, perfectly-fitted dress for the coming summer season.
In this class
In this class, you'll use the Sylvie pattern (in American sizes 0-18) to make a summer dress in the fabric of your choice. You'll be shown how to take accurate measurements and alter the pattern before cutting the fabric. You'll then make a test garment to check and adjust the fit before sewing your perfect dress.
Now you can
- recognise how to alter and adjust patterns to fit your body shape
- make perfectly-fitted garments to stock up your wardrobe for the year
- feel all the more comfortable and gorgeous in clothes that truly flatter you
Keep / Eat
The Sylvie pattern is included in the class cost, but students are asked to bring or buy the fabric, thread, zipper and interfacing for their dress (available for sale from the Village Haberdashery). You'll leave with a stunning new summer dress to show off once the days start getting warmer!
