Introduction to Dressmaking Workshop

Come along to our studio in Dumfries and learn to make your very own pair of pj’s, perfect for late night lounging and lazy Sunday mornings! By the end of the workshop you'll take home a stylish pair of Pyjama’s and leave with a whole host of dressmaking basics under your belt.

Our ‘Pyjama Party’ workshop is a great introduction to making a simple garment before moving onto making your own clothes with a commercial pattern. This workshop will build on existing beginner skills and help you master dressmaking basics. We will provide a pattern for you which you get to take home with you. You'll need to bring along some fabric of your choice. You'll learn basic pattern adjustments so you can decide what leg length you require.

You will learn how to do all these things...
• How to make a simple pair of trousers
• Working from a pattern &
• Understanding pattern terminology

• Laying out a pattern
• Pinning and Cutting Fabric
• Sewing Seams & Seam Finishing
• Basic Overlocking

• Sewing trims and ribbons
• Hemming techniques
• Ironing & Pressing techniques

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: This is a beginner's sewing workshop. If you already know your way around the sewing machine, feel comfortable using it, threading, loading the bobbin, back stitching and you're able to sew a straight seam, then this class is for you.
