Description

Want to step up your sewing skills and make an on trend dungaree dress?

If you're itching to jump into the world of dressmaking and love layering spring dresses with striped tops, converse and tights, then this 1 day beginners dressmaking class is the one for you!

You must have made sewn a couple of simple projects on your own before attending this class. If not then try our Ultimate beginners day first
winter white Dungaree dress

This is the perfect class to learn some basic dressmaking skills, and we'll provide not only your own licensed copy of the pattern, but all the hardware you need too! The pattern has two options for fastening: either buckles, or buttonholes and buttons. You can choose to make the short or midi version, which also features a centre split. There's also a Mini Cleo option for girl's 2-10.

  • You'll learn how to measure yourself and choose the right pattern size
  • Discover how to lay out a pattern and transfer all the pattern markings
  • You'll be provided with the list of supplies you'll need on your booking confirmation email.
  • Discover how to finish off an edge with a simple facing.
  • Get to grips with decorative top-stitching.
  • Use no sew fastenings i.e. the buckle.
  • You'll also learn some tips for perfect pocket pressing, and sewing buttonholes if you chose that option.

Class fee includes your own copy of the Tilly and the Buttons pattern or the mini Cleo pattern for girls', buckles and interfacing

Cleo is the perfect dress to wear year round! It will become your spring/summer staple next year with bare legs and a t shirt, or tights and a striped tee!
