Get ready for summer early by learning to sew your own cute and comfy Jersey Moneta dress! This West Hampstead class is ideal for dressmaking beginners who already know how to use a sewing machine.
Queen’s College in Oxford has a quirky symbolic tradition of presenting scholars with a needle and thread and telling them to “take these and be thrifty”. Good advice for more than just scholars, we think!
This class provides a great overview of learning to sew with knits on a home sewing machine. You’ll learn skills such as fitting and finishing, and handy tricks like using clear elastic for gathering. You’ll also try your hand at using an overlocker. In the end, you’ll sew a lovely and versatile dress using a template that ranges from XS to 3XL or American 0-26.
Students will be provided with the Moneta pattern, but will need to bring or buy their own material supplies (available for sale from the Village Haberdashery). Supplies required are as follows:
This is a very small class of four only, so make sure you’re one of the thriftiest people in town by booking today!
