Darts, tucks, pleats, gathers


These are just a representation of what you may cover in the class but it will depend on your pattern. 


What you will need:

Sewing machine (we have limited sewing machines so if you need to borrow one please advise at booking stage) 

Sewing kit

Your chosen pattern and all that is needed for this. Please discuss this with us when booking this course. We like to be prepared so an idea of what pattern you are doing before the first workshop would be great
