This course covers all the skills involved in making a garment from a commercial pattern including putting in a zip, waistbands and pockets. Students will be required to buy a pattern and fabric for either a skirt or pair of trousers of their choice and will be guided through how to adjust their chosen garment to fit themselves. Advice on the style of patterns and fabric will be given in the first session by a well-qualified and experienced tutor.
There are no entry requirements. All abilities welcome. You may enrol each term to repeat and recap skills.
