Event description

Description

This course is ideal for learners who already have a sewing background and have used commercial or shop bought patterns to make garments. This course will support learners when drafting a block and dress pattern from scratch and will provide learners with the opportunity to see it realised in a finished garment.

This course will be delivered over nine sessions (with an Easter break of one week) and will require a little private sewing work in between the sessions. The course will guide learners through measuring, drafting, fittings, alterations, layplanning, cutting and assembly. By the end of the course, delegates will have worked through approaches to skirts, dresses and bodices/tops.

Sessions are flexible and can be tailored / adjusted to meet the needs of learners. Sessions are designed to be creative, inspiring and supportive and will provide a stimulating environment in which to develop dress making skills.

Upon booking, please contact LeannMarieDesign on 07960 726 591 or at Leannmarshall@ymail.com so that your course information sheet with full kitlist can be issued.
