Tuesday 22nd April - Dressmaking 1 with Lisa Sheridan - 10am -1pm £126 6 WEEK COURSE

n this 6 week course you will learn the basics of dressmaking while making your very own Laurel dress by Colette.

This chic and simple shift dress is easy to sew, astoundingly versatile, and comfortable to wear year-round. Edges are finished with bias tape, cutting down fabric requirements while letting you play with color and print combinations. Try a contrasting binding, or binding made from your self fabric. Bound edges also give a clean look for sheer fabrics.

 

The fit is semi-loose with a fitted bust and back darts to keep the shape streamlined. The absence of front seams or waist darts makes Laurel an ideal choice for prints that normally may be difficult to work with, such as stripes, plaids, or large scale florals.

 

Version 1 includes yardage and instructions for underlining, so you may use sheer or lace fabrics. Version 2 includes menswear-style patch pockets. Version 3 features classic 1960s style gathered cuffs. Version 4 is an easy pullover blouse with no closures.

 

The class includes your pattern, but you will need to purchase all fabric and notions needed.  The course runs for 6 weeks with a break for half term.

 

Tea & coffee provided.  We always advise to bring your own sewing machine, but we are able to provide them if necessary. Please advise us if you would like one for this class.

All the extra bits........

Materials and Lunches:  When booking a class you will be told if you need to bring anything along to the class. Normally you would have the choice of purchasing fabric in store or bringing your own, or sometimes all materials are provided – if you have any questions in regard to this please just drop us a line and we can advise you. Hot and/or cold drinks and biscuits will be provided during all classes but if you are attending a full day class you will need to bring a packed lunch.

Teenagers and children:  Unless otherwise stated the majority of our classes are suitable for beginners and can be attended by teenagers with basic sewing machine (or appropriate) skills if accompanied by an adult – phone us prior to booking to confirm.

“Make and Takes”:  Make and Take sessions are designed to be suitable for all the family – so bring cousin lucy, bring great aunt Tabitha just drop by any time within the stated session. Again under eighteens must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

Childrens’ Birthday Parties:  We also run childrens’ party sessions for seven year olds upwards. Prices and timings vary to suit your needs. Ask in store, email or telephone us for your details. Please note our calendar gets booked up very quickly so book early to avoid disappointment.

Sewing Machines:  For all machine sewing classes we now recommend you bring your own sewing machines. We still have Elna 2600 machines in the classroom available for you to use if you are travelling a distant or coming by public transport -  so just let us know if you would like one set up for your chosen class. However from recent feedback  we feel strongly that people achieve more and are happier when using a machine familiar to them.

Craft Groups and Classroom Space: If you are a craft group looking for a working venue or would like to attend a class together please get in touch – we can normally organise a repeat class or an event to suit you.  Please note we can no longer offer our classroom for hire as a workroom space on an individual basis.

Booking: When booking we will need to take a 50% non-refundable deposit to secure your place. This can be transferred between class bookings (or for store credit) at least two weeks prior to your class being held.  If you cancel your booking within the two weeks prior to your class we will not be able to issue you with a transfer or store credit unless we are able to fill your place on the class.  We hope that you understand that recent short notice cancellations has meant it has been necessary  to change our booking systems and policies.

Event Days: We are not having a school house day this year instead we are continuing our range of successful event days – so come along to learn, create, enjoy and have a good old natter with like minded people. 

Do get in touch with any queries and we look forward to welcoming you soon!
