This class is suitable for beginners and intermediates.

Are you new at dressmaking or are you experienced but stuck on a particular element of your project? Do you have a pattern you want to make but don't know where to start? Do you want help with zips, buttonholes, pockets, collars or facings? Then this is the perfect session for you! You will have access to Tracey Symonds from the Great British Sewing Bee and her extensive knowledge.

She will be able to advise you of the right pattern for you to cut and make, advise on adjustments that might be needed, show you her techniques and much more!


All you need to bring is your sewing kit and machine, a pattern if you have it and some cheap fabric to make up your first one and check your fitting.  If it’s something you are stuck on, just bring that project and we'll get you back on track.


There is no formal break, but as this class runs over lunchtime, please bring a snack or some lunch with you as necessary.
