About This Course

Okay, so you already know a bit about making your own clothes. And you already see the benefits of making them to your own unique style and for your own unique body. But, you just want to be able to do MORE. More techniques, more alterations, more making it your own.

Well, we understand. And that's we've created Beyond Beginner Dressmaking: Courses designed to reinforce your existing garment making skills, whilst growing your understanding in other areas; such as sleeves, pockets, pattern alterations, and linings.

In this special 5-week Summer edition, students will get the chance to make the Victoria Blazer by ByHand London; a versatile pattern that can be made sleeveless, with cropped sleeves or with long sleeves. 

The Victoria Blazer by ByHand London, which we'll be our canvas for this course. There's a fabulous blog post on this blazer over at What Katie Sews.

Please familiarise yourself with this policy (below) before booking on this course.

Cancellation & Course Fees Refund

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.
