Dressmaking School

Course Description My Dressmaking School is designed to give you the skills you need to make made-to-measure garments. From amending the pattern to adding darts, cutting out, pinning and sewing - everything will be covered. By the end of the six sessions, you will have the skills and knowledge to complete a range of sewing projects that are more specialist and individual. 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 classes are deliberately small so it allows  as much one-on-one tuition as possible. I usually have between 1-4 clients in each session, I feel this gives you a better quality of learning and a relaxed, fun environment. I work from home so my classes are relaxing and you work at your own pace. I provide cake and drinks and you are welcome to bring your slippers so you feel at home.

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.

When I reopen I will only teach a few clients at a time and probably start with 1-2-1 sessions just to make it safer. I also disinfect my house regularly anyway but I will disinfect my before and after each client's session, this will include disinfecting door handles, light switches, tables, chairs, sewing machines and anything else that my be touched. I'm also happy to wear masks if this will help you feel safer. If you have any safety questions then please feel free to contact me.

Level - 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 Six Week Sewing School first unless you have experience making some of the items on that course.)

Duration of each session - 2 hours

Session quantity - 6

PRICE: £230

I'm currently closed at the moment due to the lockdown but I will be reopening once the government say it is safe to.

Covid 19 GuidelinesMy 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.

What if you need to reschedule your session?

I save each place especially for each individual so if you are unable to attend your session I need a minimum of two days notice (48 hours). I'm happy to reschedule your session twice if you need to, but I'm not able to reschedule without notice. So if there is a problem with the date you have book then please remember to contact me with two days notice (48 hours).

I don't offer refunds but I do my best to arrange my sessions around each clients schedule. If the government issue another lockdown then I will put my client's classes on hold and we will resume them when I reopen, so you won't loose them.

I would like to take a minute to appreciate all the women who have attended my dressmaking course. These women have learn many skills such as, inserting zips and waistbands, darts, hemming, pockets, facings, sleeves, using an overlocker, finishing seams on the sewing machine and much more. Their creativity has grown. They have been determined and have persevered through the tricky bits and are now developing patience with them selves. They are learning to take time to appreciate all their efforts and recognise every skill they achieve. This is so wonderful to witness, it amazing what six weeks can do. I see them when they first start learning, when they are unsure of themselves and don’t quite understand how it will all turn out. Then step-by-step it all starts to come together. They gain confidence and over time instead of asking what they need to do next; they come to me with ideas. They don’t realise how much they grow over the weeks but I see it. I see it and I love it! Well done to you all.

You are fabulous!

You can't use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.
