A loosely structured day for you to come with your own project and work with Kirstie to fit and then make your garment. The room is open between 10.30 and 3.30, you take as much of the time as you wish, or spend the whole day.
Kirstie will help you FIT your pattern to you . She can help you choose your fabric or match your fabric to your pattern or vice versa . She will then help you with a toile if required . We have found that most of our customers who want to dressmake can sew well but welcome help with adapting patterns to fit themselves . As the song nearly went " no one is a prefect 10"!
£20 per session. Max of 4 per class. You will need to bring your own equipment including machine.
