Would you like to be able to alter and upcycle your clothes? Or want to learn how to reshape them so they fit well? Then this course is for you! On this course you will learn techniques to build up the basic skills you need to alter your clothes, revamp your wardrobe and save money!
Do you have a garment that you absolutely love and fits you perfectly? During this course you can learn how to make a pattern from your favourite item of clothing - meaning you can create the garment at home again and again. Or is there an unworn dress still stuck in your wardrobe? The one that you wish was something else - a top, or maybe even a skirt, but previously thought it wasn’t possible? Well I have a secret I would like to share with you…it is possible and I can show you how. Become confident at adapting clothes into something new and improved - whether it is changing dresses into skirts or tops into bags. Once I have shown you the know-how, there will be no stopping you. Customise or adapt one of your favourite garments with my range of fabulous fabrics. You may even start your own fashion trend
Level - Beginners/Intermediate. This course is for women and children, I can teach children as young as eight. (If you are a beginner then you will need to take the Back to Basics workshop, unless you have experience using a sewing machine)
Session Quantity - 6
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.

As my classes are very small and I save each place especially for each individual, I'm unable to reschedule classes so please make sure you are available for the date/times you book. I also don't offer refunds so again, please make sure you are able to attend the classes you have booked. If the government issues another lockdown then I will put my client's classes on hold and we will resume them when I reopen, so you won't lose them.
