This is the perfect follow on class from our learn to sew workshop, for those keen to sew a garment following a commercial pattern while using professional techniques!
You just need to bring fabric and your lunch!
Take all the guess work out of the equation and lets just get sewing!
You will need to come into the studio before the session starts to collect your pattern and cut out it out along with the cloth - with us in the studio. That way we know you got it right!
We suggest lightweight cotton or linen or if you have a little more confidence try rayon or viscose for a floaty feel.
