  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 !
