Daytime

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!

Did you know?

Ever heard of the words ectomorph, mesomorph, and endomorph? No, they're not characters in a sci-fi novel - they're the names of three different body types that people can fall into. Sometimes, you can even fall into more than one. And in addition to that, women have four different body shapes - hourglass, pear, apple and banana/ruler. With so many variations, learning how to tailor your clothes to fit your body is all the more important
