Dress Making

The dressmaking course will allow learners to develop skills in dressmaking – to be able to read and follow a commercial pattern and make garments for self, friends, relatives and children.

The terminology used in the dressmaking patterns are a fundamental part of this course allowing you, as a learner, to have the confidence in making something at home.

The majority of the session will be spent on your own projects developing your personal skills for dressmaking. You will develop in cutting and laying fabrics, measuring and fitting garments and the sewing skills required to make a garment of your choice.

Various sewing machine techniques and dressmaking skills will be demonstrated by the experienced tutor and samples can be made each week to develop skills further.

Each week learners will be gathered for approximately 20minutes for a group discussion/demonstration to reinforce learning, the rest of the session will be spent working on own projects with one to one support from the tutor.

No previous experience, knowledge, or qualifications are needed. Beginners and advanced learners are welcome.

Items to bring or wear to classes include:

  • Basic sewing kit including scissors, pins, thread, needles, measures
  • Own sewing machine (optional)
  • Fabrics and materials for own projects (discussed on first session)
  • Dressmaking patterns
  • Small scraps of fabrics for samples (some fabrics supplied but limited)

Depending on the chosen projects further costs will incur and will include fabrics, dressmaking patterns, haberdashery and further trimmings if required. Samples can be made in the sessions if preferred.

What you can progress to:

  • Continue with dressmaking course to advance skills (there is lots to learn!)
  • Quilting course
  • Further courses in sewing at A Class Community Learning
  • Progress to a qualification in Further Education courses in sewing.
  • Self-employment in sewing
