About This Course
This is a 3-week beginners' mini course, designed to introduce you to the basics of dressmaking. Students will be given a brief overview of how to use a sewing machine, then introduced to foundational dressmaking techniques, such as using flat patterns and basic seams. They will then apply these techniques to making the MIETTE wraparound skirt in a fabric of their choice.

Cancellation & Refund Policy
Because of the popularity of our courses and the limited number of spaces available, we've now introduced a Cancellation & Refund Policy. The main aim of this is to make it fairer on those people who have signed up to the waiting list and to try and reduce last minute cancellations. Please familiarise yourself with this policy (below) before booking on this course.
All of our courses and workshops require a Deposit to book your place. The cost of the Deposit may vary, but it will be stated on the online course literature or booking page. Please note that the Deposit is completely non-refundable. If you pay the full course fee at the time of booking, the Deposit portion of that fee is retained as your non-refundable deposit.
Cancellation & Course Fees Refund
If you cancel your booking 14 or more full days before the start date of your course or workshop, you will be refunded the balance of your fees. This is equivalent to your full course fees minus your non-refundable Deposit.
If you cancel within 14 days of the start date of the course/workshop, a refund will only be issued if a replacement student can be found to take your place.
If you decide to cancel your place once the course has started, a refund is not guaranteed. In this situation we shall review the circumstances of the cancellation before deciding on appropriate solution.
