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!

Tracey was absolutely great! Her love and knowledge of sewing would put you at ease, and I cannot wait to go again for a full dress making. Would happily recommend her!!!

A really great course with excellent teacher. Very laid back, friendly atmosphere, everything explained step by step as you go along, taking time to make sure everyone follows. Went away feeling like I had really learnt how to use a sewing machine and was very proud of my skirt.

I really enjoyed Tracie and Jamie's beginners dressmaking course, they were both full of knowledge and were happy to adjust the patter of the skirt to include extra things like pockets and pleats!

I attended a sewing surgery last week to make a second pair of trousers. As I had already completed the trouser-making course, I was able to see how much I had progressed. I was able to make the second pair with much less assistance. The teachers were on hand at all times to help me, and their reassurance and praise gave me the confidence to work much more independently than the first time. I feel a real sense of achievement. One of the best things about the studio is it has an overlocking machine. This means I was able to make the hems on my trousers look professional, and vastly improves the quality of the garment. There is no difference in quality than something that has been bought in a shop, except I got to design it myself. Thank you for such a great experience

I had an amazing time at the sewing surgery. I wanted to take in and hem a skirt and don’t have that much experience. The teachers were so helpful and patient with me! My skirt looks great and I can now wear it again. I would definitely reccomend to a friend.

I left the class with a pair of trousers which I am now using as my new pj bottoms. I would recommend the class if you want a one off experience sewing. For people who have sewn before or looking to learn I wouldn't recommend it as a it as there wasn't much teaching. The sustainable ethos is great and the teacher herself nice although I felt she was constantly checking her phone to see the time.

Jaime and Tracey helped me to make trousers from scratch, even though I have very little sewing experience. They were incredibly kind and supportive. My trousers are amazing. I had the idea to add a ruffled hem and they new exactly how to achieve the look I wanted right away! I had to come back and make another pair of trousers, this time with pockets and a flat-fronted waist. I am so happy with my fantastic new clothes, but the experience of making them was lovely as well. The studio is very relaxing as it is in a garden with big windows. I even got given a piece of homemade cake, which was delicious. Thank you Tracey and Jaime for everything! I will be back (again) to make a blouse next!

I can't believe I made a pattern using my own measurments! The teachers were great. They taught in a fun and friendly way, they gave you time to work things out for yourself but didn't leave you behind if you were struggling. Would highly recommend it!

I made a zip purse! It was great, I arrived not knowing anything, and left with a wee purse that I had made myself. With a zip! The class was small, informal and lovely. I learnt a lot and will go again.

I hadn't sewn since school and I was really nervous about it, and thought I would be rubbish, but the teacher made me feel really calm and at ease, and was really friendly. I was super proud of my cushion & now I can't wait to go back and sew more stuff! I've got the bug.

Tracey was a very pleasant. Took her time in teaching me and answering any question I had. I left confident I could do it on my own and since then I’ve done two cushion covers. Thank you for a great class
