Advanced Beginner's Dressmaking - 6 Week Evening Course Winter Spring Term - Starts 13th February 2024


We have run out of stock for this item.

Are you feeling a bit more like you know what you're doing with dressmaking but you're not quite feeling up to our intermediate course?  This is for you.  For advanced, or confident beginners, this course takes you one step further than our beginner level course.

Over 6 evenings, you'll make two garments: a pair of elasticated trousers and a button up blouse.  We'll spend a bit more time looking at the fit of these, and we'll look a bit more at interfacings, and more advanced techniques, including buttonholes!

You'll go away with finished garments, and the patterns and skills to make more. Patterns are included but materials are not.  There may be some homework between sessions.

This class takes place every other week on a Tuesday evening from 6.00 - 8.30pm.  The first class is 13th February 2024, and  following dates are 27/2, 12/3, 26/3 9/4, 23/4

This 6 week course costs £185 and must be pre-booked. If you would like help coming up with a payment plan for this course, please contact us via direct message or email (sales@eternalmaker.com)

The deposit is a non-refundable £50 payment which holds your place on the course.  If for any reason you cannot take part in the course please let us know as soon as possible.  Your deposit can be transferred across to another class, or changed into store credit up until 2 weeks before the first date.

“I passionately believe in passing on sewing skills and knowledge so that more people can make their own fashion and furnishings and realise it’s a pastime that can be fast, fun, fashionable and affordable. With today’s modern equipment and sewing machines it really can be easy to sew and I love to share that fact.”
