6 weekly sessions (2 hours each)
In this 6 week course, you'll zip through all of the essential techniques needed in dressmaking. From measuring your body and making alterations, to demystifying pattern terminology, and finally, of course, constructing a garment.

You will learn multiple options for each technique, for example different seam finishes, zips, and hems. You'll learn that there's never just one way to do things in dressmaking and you don't always have to stick to the rules! You are encourage to find your own personal style and way.

The course covers learning how to make a  a skirt and you will walk away with a wearable item, as well as a sample book of extra techniques.

This course is suitable for complete beginners who have never used a sewing machine before or those who have basic knowledge but want some practical dressmaking guidance.

Materials & Equipment:
There is a selection of fabrics and trims in the studio which you can purchase for a donation towards the tea and cake fund. But, it is best to bring your own fabric, you will need at least 1.5m. A medium weight woven is ideal, this skirt will not work on stretch fabric.
Feel free to get in touch before the class to discuss fabric choices. The fabric MUST be washed before you use it (normal 30-degree wash is perfect). Sewing machines also welcome if you would like to bring yours along!

    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 !
