This is an ideal course for students with good sewing skills, who find it difficult to buy ready-made dresses that fit correctly. Or for students who would like to create original designs for themselves. This is a two day course which will cover cutting a basic block to fit you, from which a paper pattern will be cut for a design of your choice. The pattern will be made up into a toile to fit the student. You will need 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.
