During the course, we'll cover many aspects of preparation, the commercial pattern, garment construction and necessary tools and equipment.
Some of the areas we will encounter are:

We can cover any skills needed to complete a garment. The list is endless, but step-by-step we'll construct your garment and adjust it to fit as necessary!
The course is structured around a complete sewing project whilst learning the correct techniques to achieve a professional finish. In a friendly environment, you'll have feedback from the tutor and peers on a regular basis.
