|Course:||Professional Finishing Touches for Dressmakers|
|Start Date:||21st August 2018|
|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.

I came to Somerset to talk about Socrates and his search for the good life. And in many ways I found it incarnated in Dillington House. Here there is a love of beauty and truth. To find a sympathetic venue with an exquisitely rich history, open to all and encouraging debate, creativity and a passion for life is exactly the kind of thing that would have made Socrates smile. I can't wait to come back.
