Eight session class


This eight week sewing course is perfect for all abilities, from absolute beginners to those who've been sewing for years. Fashion Antidote, just off Brick Lane, will teach you all the skills you need to achieve that professional finish.

In this class

This class is suitable for all ability levels, including absolute beginners because you will start your sewing journey from the very basics, and before you move on to more advanced topics your guide will always ensure that you are feeling confident and answer any questions you may have.

The course is split into three chunks: learn to sew, make a dress and make a skirt. During the learn to sew module you will cover the essentials, such as setting up your sewing machine correctly, sewing some basic stitches and making hems. Once you're happy with all of that you'll move on to making a skirt.

Your guide will show you loads of specific skills for skirt-making, including attaching pockets, use of over-locker to finish seams and how to attach a waistband. To finish off you'll cover the process of dress-making, using all the skills you've learnt and a few new ones to make a beaut dress!

Now you can

  • Make a professional standard skirt and dress
  • Sew using a variety of advanced skills
  • Use your new techniques to try sewing other items of clothing

Button down collars are now commonplace, but that hasn't always been the case. They were actually first invented by polo players, who wished to ensure that their collars did not flap as they rode their horses!
