3 Day Improvers course

During this course, you will be building on the skills gained on the Level 1 course or that you already have, we will be using a commercial pattern, measuring the sizes and making adjustments to gain the perfect fit. Learn about fabric, inserting darts, pockets, zips, hems, interfacings and finishes to create a skirt that is a perfect fit.
You will go away feeling confident and be able to progress to the next level.

For this course, you will need to bring your sewing machine with you, purchase a commercial skirt pattern, fabric, colour match zip and thread (I would always recommend Gutermann thread) and a note book and pencil.
What you will do:
Session 1: Prepare pattern, take measurements and make adjustments to pattern and cut the skirt.

Session 2: Transfer darts and all makings onto the fabric using tailor tacks and nips. remove pattern, sew darts, and start to sew the pieces together, neaten all seams, check fit and make any adjustments, insert zip and pocket (if needed).

Session 3: Apply waistband or facing, attach interfacing (if using), neaten all edges, hem and waist, measure hem and hand stitch the hem, attach the waist fastening hook and eye or button.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available throughout the day.

£90 for 3 sessions each session is 3 hours approximately.
