Sewing - Shell Top & Skirt (5-week course)

with Penny Follows

This course runs for five sessions on consecutive weeks, from the start date listed on the calendar. Each individual session lasts two-and-a-half hours.

Are you inspired by the latest series of The Great British Sewing Bee? Or perhaps you bought or were given a sewing machine in Lockdown? You may have sewn in the past but feel a bit daunted when you look at dress making patterns?

Whatever your circumstances, you can learn to sew your own, simple stylish clothes. Sewing is a learnt skill and in this five-week course you can learn how to make a simple shell top, a skirt.

You will need to bring with you a sewing machine (if you have one), a basic sewing kit, your fabric and the pattern.

This course is intended for beginner/improver/intermediate dressmakers. You should be able to thread a machine and know how to use it. If you have one, please bring your own machine.

This class will teach you

- How to measure yourself and decide on the size to make

- How to lay the pattern and cut the garment

- How to read and interpret pattern instructions

- How to sew darts, seams, make and apply facings, make a waistband, insert a zip, machine a hem and hand stitch a hem.

Suggested patterns: Shell Top - New Look K6483, Skirt – New Look K6843 or New Look 6106
