You will learn how to:

Take measurements and chose the correct size for you.

Cut out and mark the pattern pieces accurately

Chose the correct type of stitch for your seams

Attach elastic to stretch fabric



What you will need to bring

You will need to bring:

Sewing machine and sewing kit

All the notions and fabric for the pattern - a list wil be sent to you once you have booked on. 



2Fabrics – we suggest you look at Funki Fabrics and choose.

Your fabric must have at least 20% elastane and be suitable for swimwear.

Funki Fabrics have a great range and in the right type of fabric, we are also suggesting you put lining in your swimwear to give that extra coverage so there isn’t a wet t-shirt scenario.


To choose your fabric on FunkiFabrics read this …….

Choose the pattern or plain fabric you like, you will then need to order it in either -

If it is a printed fabric - F001 Flex or PF1004 Life Recycled print base

If you choose a plain fabric Life Recycled Nylon, Matt Nylon or Shiny Nylon

The pattern may advise using lining – we recommend this Renew Soul lining from FunkiFabrics.

Why choose us?

A small business giving the best customer service


Thank you so much for my necklace and earrings. My sons were quite bemused that a vendor knew me by name and your personal touch made us all feel good. So much nicer than the faceless Amazon or even the posh mens clothing stores that I frequented (virtually) over Christmas.

I love the necklace and earrings - you were right they do match and I will share your site with friends

Myself and my daughter came in to choose a pattern to get us back into sewing again. Lizzy was so helpful, talking us through all of the patterns she has and what fabrics would suit the pattern and our skill level. We are so exicited to get started and thats thanks to Lizzy's patience and help in the shop. We can't wait to come on one of your workshops.
