It comes really handy to know a bit more about the cloath altereations – you can always wear a unique items, and you might even save money by doing the alterations yourself. I have had dressmakers say they would rather make a garment from scratch than alter one! I would rather alter one than make one!
Bring a garment with you to work on. Some embellishment, decoration will be provided but feel free to bring your own
You will learn how to:
Breathe new life into an old garment:
- embellish, decorate…. using fur, lace, braid and trim.
- Change buttons, add appliqué, motifs…..
- Shorten a skirt or jacket.
- Insert a zip
- Take up a hem
- Take in a seam
- Shorten trousers.
By end of course:
You will have given a new lease of life to a garment of your own and have other ideas on how to make-do and mend other items in your wardrobe.
Duration and time and Dates:
We run one day workshops and longer – four-six weeks sewing alteration courses.
