Would you love to learn how to repair or make simple alterations to your clothes with confidence……well this class is for you.
Each class guest will bring their own garments along to class and learn how to alter and restyle them. You’ll learn a variety of new sewing techniques and build on skills you’ve learnt at our other So Sew Pretty workshops.
Your tutor, Leah is a professionally trained fashion designer with 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.
You’ll learn how to measure, mark and pin for alterations, alter hems on trousers and skirts, create seams and darts for a more custom fit and even sew on a button! Both hand and sewing machine techniques will be used.
PLEASE NOTE: We do not cover zip insertion at this class but you can get to grips with zips at our other workshops we offer . If you already know your way around the sewing machine, feel comfortable using it, threading, loading the bobbin, then this class is for you.
