|Course:||Understanding Commercial Patterns|
|Start Date:||10th July 2018|
|Fee:||£54.00 What's included?|
The success of dressmaking using commercial paper patterns depends on understanding the instructions and markings on the paper pattern. This course is for students who want to fully understand how to adapt the pattern and successfully cut out the correct size to fit them and make up the garment. You will need to bring a pattern and calico to make up a toile (sample garment) during the day. 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.

I love going to Dillington. Where is there like it? Arriving is like a decompression, a deep breath of pure air. The programmes of courses, concerts and talks are exceptional. The company is delightful; the food and the ambiance add to the pleasure; and all set in a magical landscape which seems to me a secret Somerset paradise. In a world of increasing dislocation, Dillington has a real sense of its place in the world.
