Beginner's Dressmaking - a series of 4 classes 


Taught by Kate Gordon


Thursdays    30 May 6,13, 20 June

Midday - 2.30pm


The fee covers tuition for the 5 classes and a choice of 1 pattern from the suitable options we have in store. These are selected patterns geared to easy and beginner's skills. The ideal pattern is a skirt, but if this does not suit your gender please reach out and we can find an alternative. 


Additional patterns can be purchased if you find you are completing the project ahead of schedule. 


Our classes are geared for 4 to 6 students, so that we can ensure you get plenty of time with, and guidance from, the teacher.

You will be required to make a calico toile, in addition to your skirt, so you will need requirements for this as well.  Most requirements will be avialable to purchase in store and can be kitted up ready for you.
