My Advanced Dressmaking School is designed to give you the skills you need to make made to measure garments. I will help you learn how to use industry-clothing patterns by understanding pattern markings and pattern instructions. You will learn how to amend the garment to fit your body by using and adding darts; you will also learn other techniques such as reshaping a garment/pattern to the desired style and fit that you are looking for.
By the end of the nine-weeks you will have the skills and knowledge to complete more advanced project that are more specialist and individual to you. The cost covers expert advice and tutoring, the use of a sewing machine, fabric, cotton, any accessories that are needed such as zips, buttons, wadding and much more!
My courses are bespoke and cater for each person individually. Please choose from the dates/time indicated on the calendar below or if these dates/times do not work for you then once I have received your payment I will be happy to arrange a day that is more suitable. It is not necessary for you to be available for six consecutive weeks on the same day. Book the date of your first week - then I will arrange the rest of your sessions upon arrival.

Duration of each session - 2 hours

Covid 19 Guidelines
My home is a business so I abide by the government business guidelines. At the moment my classes will be 1-2-1 so we can keep the two meter rule. I ware a face shield to keep my clients and myself safe and wash my hands before and after every lesson. Sewing machines, tools, door bell, gate and all surfaces that my clients may touch will be disinfected before and after every client. I also ask that all clients bring hand sanitiser and sanitise their hands before they enter my home. If you have any safety questions then please feel free to contact me.
