What you will do
2 hour workshop
The summer is well is on it's way and what better way to get prepared and be the envy of everyone at the park or on the beach than your own home made skirt or pair of summer shorts!
This work shop is great for adults, you can make your own shorts or a skirt, or one as a gift, as well as being the perfect introduction to sewing for children. This workshop will give you the confidence to throw yourself in to making your own clothes, or if you're an experienced sewer you can make yourself a summery treat.
Learn how to measure, fit, pin and cut a pattern, add an elastic waistband, overlock and hem!
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
This is a Flexitime class, which means the teacher can run this class around your schedule.

About your host, Make Mee Studio
Make Mee Studio is run by Tracey & Jaime. Two enthusiastic lifelong sewers (both sewing since they were 5 years old!) They love sharing their making skills with others, and have over 10 years of combined teaching experience working with adults and children. They offer sewing lessons, parties, alterations, makes and commissions in their Brockley, South East London based garden studio and are also available for external school and community projects.
Tracey is a very experienced seamstress who has been working in the business for over 18 years, she started as a costume assistant working for Grenada and the BBC going on to run her own bespoke label and then she began teaching 6 years ago and fell in love. She one of the most precise sewers you'll ever meet and always has a handy hint or trick up her sleeve. She loves keeping the studio neat, tidy and organised, everything has a place!
Jaime primarily studied Textile Design gaining a Masters from Chelsea College of Art. Her passion lies in sustainable fashion and textiles, she began teaching as an antidote to the endless cycle of fast fashion. Teaching people how to make and sew and fix and mend themselves can have a huge impact on how they consume and how they feel about their clothing. She is a self-taught dressmaker and loves encouraging people to make things unique, she's a magpie for anything, velvet, fluffy or sparkly and is terrible at keeping to Tracey's organised system!
If you have any questions, please contact Tracey & Jaime using the ‘contact host’ button on the website page.
We have a selection of fabrics and trims in the studio which you can purchase for a donation towards our tea and cake fund. If you would like to bring your own fabric bring at least 1 metre, the shorts could work in stretchy or non-stretch fabric. The skirt would be better in a light weight woven fabric. If you would like to practice sewing on your own machine please feel free to bring it along.
All students under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
