What Will I Need To Bring?  

You will need to purchase your own copy of the Fabric Godmother Peony Dress pattern and bring it to class, cut and ready to sew. You will also need to bring along the fabric you need to make your dress. After booking we will send you an email which will explain exactly the type of fabric you should bring and how much you will need.  You will also need to bring a packed lunch. 

This Class Is For You If

This is an adult improver dressmaking class. That means it’s not ideal as your first dressmaking class, or for complete beginners. You will need to be able to use a sewing machine and follow a seam allowance. Ideally you will have completed some beginner dressmaking projects such as our Sew a Simple range of classes. We will ask you to come to class with your pattern and fabric cut and ready to sew, so you will need to be comfortable doing this at home.  This class is for over 16s only. If you are in any doubt if this class is for you please drop an email to amanda@sewyoucan.co.uk 

This Class Is Not For You If

This is an adult class, so it is not for anyone under the age of 16. This class is also not for you if you have never used a sewing machine before and never tried using a dressmaking pattern.
