The Friday sewing club is aimed at giving experienced sewers the chance to come together and have fun sewing whilst learning new skills. Each 5 week course runs alongside the school half term. During each course we will tackle a new sewing project, covering a variety of techniques and gaining knowledge and confidence.
Classes are held at my home studio in Cheam, Surrey. Details and directions are provided with booking confirmation.
Spring One: The Kielo Wrap Dress/Jumpsuit
During this 5 week course we will make the Kielo wrap dress or Jumpsuit by Named Patterns. You will learn how to sew a dress using a knit fabric. We will look at fitting and cover professional finishing techniques.
The Kielo dress and jumpsuit are wonderfully casual, yet stylish pieces of clothing! You can sew both variations either with or without sleeves. The dress has a neck band, and a vent at the back hem to add room for movement. The armholes of a sleeveless dress are finished with a bias binding. There is a vent with a button closure at the back of the jumpsuit, and its neckline is finished with a facing.
