Can you sew simple garments, but often struggle with achieving a good fit on your projects? Maybe you are full or small busted, or have a broad back, narrow shoulders or full thighs…fitting issues can be endless!
This class is led by experienced bespoke dressmakers and patterncutters Claire Tyler and Vanessa Ahern. Both tutors have over 30 years bespoke dressmaking and production runs experience as well as over 7 years experience teaching others to sew at various schools around the country and at shows such as The Knitting & Stitching Show.
Because of their extensive bespoke dressmaking experience Claire and Vanessa can tackle any type of alteration and fitting issue you may have. Just bring one of your sewing projects along with your pattern. This can be either a toile you’ve been working on, a garment you have already cut or a pattern you’d like to make up. During the class you will be shown how to make alterations to your garment/toile and pattern to achieve a perfect fit!
*Please bring a length of calico or extra fabric in case your garment or toile needs to be recut.
This class is not suitable for beginners. You will need to have previously completed some simple sewing projects and have basic understanding of garment construction.
*Please arrive 5 minutes early to allow time to settle and ensure prompt start. There will be tea and biscuits to keep you going sweetly though the session!
