Dressmaking: The Easy Way.... with Geraldine Sykes
Four Days starting Friday 26th July 2024

Want to make clothes that fit and flatter your shape and size.  With Geraldine Sykes and the book, Dressmaking: The Easy Guide, at your side you will be able to do so.

Come along a course of four days and Geraldine will show you how to take your measurements correctly and trace off the pattern for your size.  Then you will cut and make a toile in calico.  With Geraldine's help the toile will be fitted to you ready for you to select fabric of your choice and make a garment that fits and flatters you. 

This four day course will allow you to start designing your own clothes or if using commercial patterns, allow you to adapt them to fit you using the block created in calico.  You will then be ready to create many more garments to flatter your figure!

The dates for the course are Fridays:

  • 26th July 2024
  • 23rd August 2024
