Dressmaking for Beginners

If you’ve always wanted to make your own clothes then join Leah Halliday at her introduction to dressmaking workshop.

Come along to Shambellie House and learn to make your very own pair of pj’s, perfect for late night lounging and lazy Sunday mornings! By the end of the workshop you’ll take home a stylish pair of Pyjama bottoms and leave with a whole host of dressmaking basics under your belt.

This workshop is a great introduction to making a simple garment and will help you understand the basic principles of dressmaking before moving onto making your own clothes with a commercial pattern. You’ll learn how to lay pattern pieces correctly onto the fabric and she’ll take you step by step through the garment making process. You’ll also learn basic pattern adjustments so you can decide what leg length you require.

Leah will provide a pattern for you which you get to take home with you. You’ll need to bring along some fabric and notions of your choice.
