Event description

Description


2 1/2 hour classes run every Thursday morning from January 19th to March 9th inclusive.

LEVEL 3

£190

This 8 week course is the natural progression after Level 2 Next Steps in Sewing. Having already notched up a pocketful of sewing skills this class aims to perfect and hone your cutting, sewing, pressing and finishing techniques. It will introduce garment construction with interfacings, interlinings and linings. Students will be encouraged to choose a more advanced pattern to tackle, and tailoring is encouraged. Each class is 2 1/2 hours long which allows plenty of time to get stuck in and complete each weeks project.

Christine teaches with patience, enthusiasm, encouragement and experience at every step. Our N.I Sewing Bee Angeline Murphy was once one of her dressmaking students. She has over 25 years experience in fashion, costume, and self employment in Northern Ireland.

We will cover the following:

Garment construction, linings, interlinings.

How to press for the professional look.

Advanced pattern choice and fit.

Introduction to tailoring.

Always with lots of industry tips up her sleeve, Christine loves to share these with you!

Students are encouraged to think, sew and design creatively.

Class sizes are limited to 5 people so that learning is focused and fun. There must be a minimum of 3 people booked on for the class to run.

All machines are provided and there is 1 overlocker. All machines are domestic. You are welcome to bring your own machine if you prefer.

A small materials list will be given out at the first class. Please bring a notepad and a camera to class.
