3 DAYS INTO SEWING… AND ON TO DRESSMAKING

DAY 1

  • Make a Spinney Brook Workbox fully lined tote bag to put those new skills to the test.
  • Materials provided.

DAY 2

  • Learn how to use a simple commercial pattern.
  • Lay out your fabric and cut out a basic pattern to make your first garment, a child’s dress or a simple skirt.
  • Learn the importance of accurate cutting and marking.

DAY 3

  • Use a more complicated commercial pattern; a dress or a shirt.
