DETAILS

During this class, Aileen will be introducing you to the wonderful world of dressmaking. We'll be covering basic sewing machine skills to create a beautiful gathered skirt with either a zip closure or elasticated waist. We'll be advancing your skills to include:

- drafting your own pattern

- creating a waistband

- inserting closures (either elasticated waist or zip closure) 

- inserting pockets

- sewing and finishing seams

- hems

The class is split into two sessions, running from Aileen's home in East Belfast on Saturday 8th and 15th September between 10am and 1pm each day.

By the end you'll leave with your very own handmade and self drafted Gathered Skirt!!!

This class is suitable for beginners, and anyone over the age of 16 is welcome. For those of you who don't have a machine, don't worry! Machines can be provided- just make sure to click one of the 'Class + Sewing Machine !' options when you're booking your spot.

Additionally, if you love Aileen's black and white gingham version (let's face it, it's hard to beat), you can choose for us to provide the fabric by clicking one of the 'Class + Fabric' options when booking.

There are just a few things we'll ask you to bring along with you on the mornings if you havent booked for machine hire or fabric option:

  • Some basic sewing kit supplies such as pins, scissors, tape measure etc
  • A minimum of 2m of woven fabric (more if you would like a full length skirt - contact for more information)
  • A regular zipper foot compatible with your machine and 8"" zipper

Your booking confirmation email will provide you with all outstanding class details including the venue address.
