Thursdays| 18.30-21.30 | £200 | 10 weeks | 17th January – 28th March


This course will provide you with the foundation skills to create a bespoke dress.

Using personal measurements you will learn how to draft a block & make a pattern and calico toile for fitting and pattern adjustments. You will be taught how to use the block to create different styles for future projects. Through discussion with the tutor you will be able to design & make a pattern for a unique dress.

Further study will provide support if required for the best methods of constructing your final piece.

No knowledge of pattern making is required but an enthusiasm and prior knowledge of dressmaking and how to use a sewing machine is beneficial.

The course involves problem solving and basic Maths using a calculator.

There will be no class on the 20 February for half term
