Crafters Smock Dressmaking Workshop

Leah has drafted an original pattern inspired by old fishing or artist’s smocks with deep pockets and a roomy feel that is perfect for crafting and creating in!

Your tutor, Leah is a professionally trained fashion designer with a serious love of pattern cutting, vintage style and many years of experience in sewing and dressmaking. Her eye for detail, knowledge of couture finishing combined with her experience as a sewing tutor and fashion lecturer makes Leah the perfect person to help you master dressmaking basics.

Carefully designed to allow you to master the basics of facings, hems, seams and setting in sleeves you will be able to make your own simple style adjustments and make a top that you wont want to take off.

This workshop will help you understand the principles of dressmaking. You’all learn how to lay pattern pieces correctly onto the fabric and we’all take you step by step through the garment making process, learning how to insert a sleeve, top/edge/under stitching, facings, interfacing, and overlocking. You can also make simple pattern adjustments to your smock pattern.
We will provide a pattern for you and you bring along some fabric and notions of your choice. You will leave with skills under your belt, a new top and a copy of the pattern to make as many as you like!

Tools of the trade are provided. Classes are small, maximum class number is 6 guests, to ensure you get the personal tuition you need to help with your project and get the best out of each workshop we host.

PLEASE NOTE: Although this is a beginner's dressmaking workshop, you should already know your way around the sewing machine. If you can thread a machine, load the bobbin, back stitch and have a couple of projects under your belt then this class is for you.
Tea & refreshments are also provided throughout the day, feel free to bring a packed lunch too!
