2 Day Dress Making Course

About 2 Day Dress Making Course

Where: Sew Confident Bothwell, 35A Main Street, Bothwell, G71 8RD
This course runs over 2 Saturdays/Sundays aims to teach you the basics of following a commercial pattern.

You will learn how to:

Understand the jargon and terminology used
Understand all symbols and directions on a pattern
Understand different fabrics
The importance of a toile
Fitting the toile and adjusting your pattern
Pattern construction
Finishing techniques

The pattern is not included in the class. You can buy sewing patterns online or in any good fabric shop. Please ensure you buy the correct sized pattern, as you cannot simply go by your dress size as these vary from company to company. When working out your size, take your rough measurements and check the measurements on the pattern to ensure it is not too small. The sales assistant in the shop will be able to help you with this.

You don’t have to pick a clothing pattern, there are a huge range of patterns available, from soft toys to home furnishings – choice is yours!

We cannot guarantee that you will complete the project, as this depends very much on individual ability and the speed you work at. You will however have the knowledge and understanding to complete it at home. You may wish to do some sewing at home between classes, as you will leave the class bursting with enthusiasm! This is optional and your tutor will give you guidance on this.

Sew Confident is a fun, social learning environment where peer support comes as standard! YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BRING YOUR OWN SEWING MACHINE as machines are provided.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for 2 Day Dress Making Course are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
