This class is taught by Barbara Roots, out highly experienced dressmaking tutor.  You are in very patient and knowledgeable hands with Barbara.

This class is aimed at sewers who want to take the first steps into dressmaking.  You will learn all the basics of how to cut out and follow a pattern and much more.


You should be confident in using a sewing machine.  We will, of course, point out the nuances of our machines as they may be different to what you use at home.


You will receive an email with detailed instructions when you sign up. You will need to have your pattern in advance of the class as there will be a bit of preparation to do with it before class.
