If you are new to dressmaking and are wondering how to get started, this is the perfect class.
Join us in our beautiful studio as our friendly tutor guides you every step of the way as you sew your first top. The Stevie pattern from Tilly and the Buttons is perfect for beginners. It has a relaxed fit and is easy to sew grown-on sleeves and Tilly's award-winning beginner-friendly instructions. This pattern can make a top or dress length version.
Who is this class for?
This class is for you if you had used a sewing machine before and completed some simple projects such as simple skirts or pyjama bottoms and you feel ready to take on a slightly more complex sewing pattern.
This class is not for you if:
You have never used a sewing machine before - we recommend completing one of our beginner's classes first.
As well as all the tea you can drink, we will provide the sewing machines, all of the tools and threads you will need to complete your projects, and any interfacing elastic that you will need. You will also receive your copy of the Tilly and The Button's Stevie pattern to keep to make again at home.
Lunch is also provided in the all-day class.
What do I need to bring:
You will need to bring the fabric that you need for your Top. You are free to bring this with you, or we have material for sale in the studio. After booking, we will send you an email outlining the type and amount of fabric required.
