✂️ Beginner’s Dressmaking – Cuff Top
06/06-10:00 AM–4:00 PM BST£85
This is a summer dressmaking project you will come to use again and again…. this is also a great beginners make so super sewing friendly for all. It works really well in linen and cottons but can be really lovely in fabrics with more drape too.
This really is a classic easy to wear garment, with an elegant roomy fit and cap sleeves with an elasticated cuff. You are going to wear this loads and make many, I promise! The pattern comes in a full range of sizes from XS – 4XL . Please make sure that you let us know when booking what size you would like us have to hand for you ( XS-L or XL- 4XL) and see our website event listing to see how to measure yourself.
You will be using the Cuff Top pattern from The Assembly Line, this is one of their most popular patterns.
You will start the session taking some simple measurements to ensure you have the right size and fit for you. Then you’ll learn the basics of dressmaking; looking at cutting out the pattern, laying out your fabric and making sure that you cut out accurate and correctly marked pieces.
We’ll show you how to construct and finish your garment and how to attach the stylish elasticated cuff sleeve.
This really is a great beginners project.
