Barbara Roots has been teaching dressmaking for many years, primarily with Kent Adult Education.  She is extremely knowledgable, patient and kind and you will benefit enormously from her instruction as well as enjoying the lovely company of others.

In this class you'll learn to create a toile (practice piece) for yor garment to adjust the fit. You'll learn construction methods relevant to the pattern you've chosen (and you'll also learn methods from what others in the class are doing)


You will need to bring a simple pattern or one suitable to your sewing level. You will receive joining instructions regarding fabric to bring for your toile.

  • You will receive an email when you book that says 'links to download your digital products'  Don't panic.  This is just a PDF for you with the course details, materials needed and a bit more information relevant to the course.  You will not need to do anything else but if you have any questions just drop me an email.

  • Please be aware that class fees are non-refundable.  However, if we need to cancel the class for any reason you will, of course, receive a full refund.  The rare exception would be if you give us plenty of notice and we are able to find a replacement student for your space. (That's the beauty of the waiting list)
