Learn to sew: a versatile dress

North London Sewing Classes hosts this fast-paced sewing class where you will learn to sew from a commercial pattern. In six hours you will learn to work with a commercial pattern, and to adapt it to your own measurements. You will then sew the dress with the fabric of your choice.

What you will learn:
-Read and work from a commercial pattern
-Take your accurate measurements
-Alter the pattern to fit your own measurements
-Pin and cut the fabric
-Sew the dress
-Sew a belt (optional, and depending on time)
-We will also make some small alterations to the pattern together; these alterations will help making the construction of the dress easier and in the process you will learn some professional sewing finishing techniques.

You will leave this sewing class with your dress made to your measurements, as well as with the pattern so you can sew it again at home.

All the equipment will be provided, you only need to bring the fabric of your choice (dimensions required will be emailed to you).
Fabrics recommended on the pattern are lightweight linen, stable knits, crepe and faille. We think this dress will generally look best if you pick a soft, drapey fabric, a silk satin or a good quality viscose. Also the design of the dress works well for statement fabrics, so give in to that print you like!
Another suggestion is to pick two different fabrics: one for the main parts of the dress, and a contrasting one for the yoke and the belt. Whatever inspires you!

You are welcome to bring your own sewing machine to the class.
