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).

  • 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.
