Sew your First Garment Workshop

My next sewing class is coming up soon and I've still got a couple of spots left. We will be making a top from a commercial sewing pattern and this will happen over two workshops. 

1st workshop Sunday, 13 Oct (10-12) $20
We will cut out the pattern in class and look at things like sizing, reading pattern symbols, adjusting a pattern (lengthening/shortening to fit your body) and choosing fabrics for this project. 

This workshop is optional if you have worked with patterns before. 

2nd workshop Sunday, 20 Oct (9.30-12.30) $30
We will sew the top together in this class. We will look at how to make and finish your top, which shortcuts you can safely use, alternative ways to finish the neckline and how to adjust the top if necessary.

These workshops are aimed at new sewers (not complete beginners, but this is perfect if you've done a few simple things on your machine and would like to move onto clothes). 

You will need your won machine and pattern; email me if you'd like to book or want any more information.
