Up your sewing game, broaden your options, and make something new and unique for your wardrobe!
The ideal next step on from Making Clothes for Beginners, this 8-week, in-depth course is designed to reinforce your basic skill set, whilst allowing you to flourish in new areas. Topics include pattern alterations, set-in sleeves, inserting collars, bust adjustments, linings, using an overlocker, and specialty seem finishes. As you learn these techniques, you'll be applying them to your own toile and final garment, chosen from our selection of patterns.
This is a Beyond Basics course, which means that you must have a basic understanding of garment construction and how to use a sewing machine, having made at least one garment before.
