Four Week Course
Arrietty At Exeter Phoenix
Introduction To Dressmaking
Discover the basics of dressmaking with Arrietty.
For this course you will need to be able to use a sewing machine independently to join this course. If you are not confident using a machine please look at the suitability of our Sewing Basics course.
During this two week course you will learn how to make a tunic dress (pattern provided).
Lesley Strath is a professional seamstress with many years’ experience, making and designing bespoke wedding dresses. She has been working as a sewing tutor for Arrietty for the past 4 years.
Participants will need to bring:
- 3m of fabric (minimum 115cm width) and matching thread.
- A basic sewing kit and sewing machine – or you can rent one for the course for £5 per session.
Suitable fabrics: Medium weight dress fabric or light weight furnishing fabric. We recommend using cotton, linen, lightweight denim, wool or corduroy for this dress.
