Materials, Tools
Beginners, Intermediate
This course is for those who want to further their skills. You will learn to make a top with a collar, facings, placket and more. A great follow on from our beginners dressmaking or for home sewers who want more guidance.

There are basic dressmaking skills you might already know, zips, buttons, darts. But, there are some important other methods that you will want in your repertoire, collars, facings, placket, pleats that will take your home sewing from cute to couture.

We'll be working on making a top during the course so you can see the magic of the techniques come together to make a finished and wearable item, as well as a sample book of extra techniques. You don't have to make the top for yourself, but please bring measurements of person you are making it for. There will be options for different styles.

We have a selection of fabrics and trims in the studio which you can purchase for a donation towards our tea and cake fund. If you would like to bring your own fabric you will need at least 1.5m. A mediumweight woven is ideal, this skirt will not work in stretch fabric. Feel free to get in touch before the class to discuss fabric choices. The fabric MUST be washed before you use it. (A normal 30-degree wash is perfect.)If you would like to practice sewing on your own machine please feel free to bring it along.

This course is suitable for beginners who have used a sewing machine before, or those with some experience who want to learn new skills. It's a great follow on from our Beginner's Dressmaking Class, or for home sewers who want to further their skills. You can work at your own pace, we have plenty to keep you occupied whatever your level.

  1. Rated 5 out of 5
    A well thought-out class, it covers lots of facets of dress making, but using a skirt as a specific example, so that you can walk home with you first handmade piece of clothing after 6 weeks! Tracey was a great and patient teacher, and very good at juggling looking after 3 students who were sometimes working on different things, as some skirts progressed faster in some areas and then slower in others.
    Also, the studio is located in the back of Tracey's garden so it's just the loveliest setting.
    I only joined this because a friend was going and I thought "why not?", but found the experience so amazing that I've just bought my own sewing machine and started a couple of small projects already! 
    In sum: I would highly recommend this class, even if you're not sure yet whether sewing is for you and you just want to try it out.

    I would highly recommend Tracey's class as it is very detailed and explanatory ,
    She would make sure anytime that you'd fully understand the process behind sewing a zip or making a dart and so on.
    The atmosphere is lovely and relaxing: feels so good to be able to stop thinking about hectic work and personal life issues for a couple of hours during the class!
    If you'd start this course you won't regret it and you'll walk home with an awesome skirt !
