Maximum Class Size: 5 Students 

Class Level: This class follows on from our Essential Skills A (previously Introduction to Machine Sewing Part 2) and is suitable for those who have begun garment making, have had practise of using patterns but would like to refine their skills. 

Through making a series of samples in calico, you will learn a number of dressmaking techniques and finishes, to help you to get the best finishes on your sewing projects and progress to using more Intermediate sewing patterns with confidence. 

The class covers: 

  • Lapped Zip 
  • Neckline 
  • Contour Dart 
  • French Seam
  • Flat Felled Seam 
  • Closed seam with edge stitch and footstitch
  • Piped Seam
  • One Step Buttonhole (if time) 

All materials and notions are provided. A sewing machine and scissors will be allocated to you. Please let us know if you would like to bring your own machine.
