What's the plan Stan?
A series of 4 evening workshops, and in the end you will have a stunning pair of the best dungarees hands down – trust me I have made a them all!
During the sessions you will learn –
- How to measure your body to suit the commercial pattern – by Sew House Seven
- How to cut your pattern out to your preferred size and shape
- How to correctly lay and cut your cloth/fabric
- How to interpret and read commercial patterns and follow instructions including notches
- How to fully sew a garment, with overlocked seams, side pockets, belt loops, waistband and hems
- Learn all of my professional techniques, tips and tricks to take your homemade to handmade.
What do I bring?
Just your fabric! Make Town will provide everything else x
You will need to come in before the workshop starts to cut out your pattern and fabric – This should take 2.5 hours – and can be any time which I will email to arrange directly.
This means we can focus just on the sewing for the next 4 sessions, and we can both be assured this has been cut out correctly.
- The pattern is yours to keep and use again and again.
- Matching threads for your fabric is provided
All equipment, including sewing machines, overlockers, scissors, rulers, marking chalks and pens, irons and pins are all here for you to use.
We also have a fridge with unlimited tea and coffee. Maybe also bring some snacks for in between!
Where to next?
Home James! Go to the pub and grab a beer you deserve it!
At the end of this series, you will have a very clear and in depth understanding of garment construction and a really bloody cool pair of dungarees to swan off home in! La de daa!
You should leave this class feeling confidant that you could whip up another pair on your own! So, continue your sewing adventure, and book into one of our evening sewing classes, so you can sew up another pair.
There is no greater feeling than the satisfaction of creating something with your own two hands! It’s contagious and once you start you will be itching to make your entire wardrobe.
Can’t wait to see ya!
Do I need any sewing experience?
Just a little.We recommend you attend our learn to sew – the basics workshop so you know how we like our machines to be treated. Or brush up with this class instead.
Can I bring my dinner?
Yeah course. We understand this is right on tea time so yeah, bring ya food x
I think i'm a bit unwell...
Back off then! I shouldn’t have to tell you this, but everyone’s health is paramount in our studio so stay the fuck away.
I want to come but the dates don't work?
No worries mate! You are welcome to attend out late night sewing sessions instead. Just purchase the pattern and fabric and we will take it from there.
Can I bring my own machine?
Why? We have excellent Janome machines in the studio suitable for the task at hand. If you are after some guidance because your machine is being a dick, book a 121 and I can help you out.
