Sew a Donna Karan dress

In this North London Sewing Class workshop you will make this fantastic designer's dress in seven hours. You will learn to sew from a commercial pattern and adapt it to your own measurements. This pattern requires you to sew a statement metallic exposed zip, which you will learn to do in the class.

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
-Insert a zip
-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 moderate stretch knits: double knit, wool jersey,interlock. We found that this dress also looks good in cords or corduroy.

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

This class runs as a two-part evening class on Tuesday 14th + 21st October.
This class also runs as a daytime class on Friday 14th November.
