May & June 18 Mailchimp header

Are you like me and loving the fabulous weather we’ve been having? (Although today has been a bit of a washout!) It’s totally making me think about my summer wardrobe and what I want to wear once the summer returns in earnest!

And to help you add to your me-made summer wardrobe, I’ve got some fabulous brand new workshops lined up for you over the next month or so…

Coming up…

Reading & Understanding Patterns
Monday 21st May – 6-8pm – Bawtry – £25

Is it like reading a foreign language_
Decipher the hieroglyphics that dressmaking patterns are written in! My students often tell me that they are intimidated by dressmaking patterns and that they are just so confusing that they don’t know where to start.

Take this interactive workshop and it will all begin to make sense. Understand how to make the right size to get a great fit, pick the right fabric for your project and start to create fabulous wearable garments.
