Saturday Sewing Class - Fabulous Floaty Florrie Top or Dress

Fabulous Florrie

 

Come along this Saturday and go home with a fabulous addition to your wardrobe.

I love our Florrie top, you can choose from three lengths, so something for everyone, and it is such a great garment to wear, so floaty and cool for these mad summer days - just perfect.

I made this one in a cotton/linen mix with some contrast bias binding on the neck and the sleeves, it is lovely, and we have this fabric in 8 colourways.  I also have one in the navy gingham which is cute.

For a more formal/work look I made the knee length dress with out the hankerchief hem in a gorgeous charcoal chambray, just look at the cute trim.

If you wanted something for the evenings, then you can make the longer length, which is a great holiday staple.

So lots of options, and a very easy make so this class is suitable for beginners, or people who have just started sewing with a machine.

Date: Saturday 8th July

Time: 10am - 4pm

Venue: Neighbourhood Church Hall, Beckenham

Tutor: Jo Steele

Cost: £70 (including pattern)

Pattern Cutting Class - Saturday 22nd April 10am - 4pm

Fed up with clothes that don’t fit?

Can't find clothes that you

like ?

Then this is the course for you, we introduce you to drafting patterns from your own measurements.

 

Suitable for people with some knowledge of sewing and garment construction. You will possibly have been on one or more of our dressmaking courses, and are ready to take your dressmaking skills to the next level.

You will learn how and where to take accurate measurements from on your body and how to use these to draft a close fitting sleeveless bodice block. 

This is the basis for fitted tops and the bodices of dresses. Once the block is drafted you will be shown how to: manipulate darts, add style lines and fullness (eg pleats and gathers), seam allowances and hems, in order to design your own top.

You will be given detailed written instructions to take away with you so you can create new blocks for other people.

There will be no sewing on this course. All equipment and paper will be provided, but you may wish to bring along a notebook and pen.
