Course: Professional Finishing Touches for Dressmakers
Tutor: Jenny Harrison
Start Date: 21st August 2018
Start Time: 09.45am
End Time: 4.00pm
Fee: £54.00 What's included?

There are many techniques that give a dressmaker the edge to achieve a professional finish. This ensures the garment looks well-constructed and less homemade, resulting in a garment that will be worn, rather than left in a cupboard unfinished. During the day the course will cover general construction techniques, such as understitching, that is used on facings, waistband application, making shirt collars, neatening methods and concealed zip application. All welcome but you will need a reasonable amount of sewing knowledge, including the ability to use your own sewing machine, which you will need to bring with you.
