About this event

Our garment this month will be the Martha Dress from Tilly and the Buttons. The Martha dress is a contemporary update on the fit-and-flare style. It features a high neckband, princess seam panels, a bias-cut flared skirt and closes with an invisible zip at centre back. Choose from short sleeves or three-quarter length bell sleeves, with knee-length or mini hemline. This is a great dress to wear to work or to play, with sunglasses and wedges in the summer, or with knitted tights and boots in the winter.

By signing up you will get a copy of the pattern and two workshops with our sewing tutor Jo. You will need to buy your own fabric and have access to a sewing machine.

How does it work?

  1. We will post your pattern directly to your house.
  2. The first Zoom workshop will be an opportunity to chat with Jo about the pattern, go over cutting out your materials and some bits you will have to prepare before the sewing session. This will be held on October 5th from 6pm - 7pm. If you aren't able to attend this session a recording will be sent out.
  3. We have two options available for the sewing session.
    1. You can join an online workshop that will be a 4 hour session where Jo will show you how to complete your garment on Zoom. This will be held on October 26th from 6pm - 10pm. Bring snacks!
    2. Join Jo in person at the Learning Centre for a three how sewing session to finish your garment. This will be on October 31st from 12pm - 4pm.

    You will be able to pick the option your prefer in the tickets. There are limited spaces for each.

    This is an intermediate sewing workshop so we suggest that you are comfortable using a sewing machine if you will be taking part. You will need access to your own sewing machine.
