What you'll do

On arrival and after a coffee and biscuits, we’ll look at patterns and decide on one to make in the day. Fabric will be laid out and we’ll start to pin and cut. We’ll adjust and handstich before machining and stop for lunch at a local cafe. After lunch we’ll finish the garment as time allows or I’ll show you how to finish off.

Monique

Join me at my cosy workshop to create a flattering skirt or dress in a fabric of your choice and have it ready to wear by the end of the day’s workshop. A bit like on The Great British Sewing Bee! We can visit a fabric store or check through our stash to purchase or you can bring your own material. We’ll show you how to measure yourself, cut and follow a pattern and of course create the item and finish it at our workshop. Other patterns can be followed too.

What's included

Equipment
Overlock and sewing machines available.
