Customer Review:

“Can I just say thank you for all your help, patience, not only kind words, but words of courage and mostly passing on your knowledge. This time last year went along to your beginners course…. With the intention of making a few leotards for my daughter and hopefully a costume here or there. I never dreamed I’d be in full swing and loving the journey I’m on. The photographer snapped these of Rachel at her last festival… wearing MY….(it still sends me over the edge saying that 😂) costumes. Don’t get me wrong… there have been some classics along the way, and a “shit load” of mistakes… but that’s how we learn.. right?!?Thanks again Dot 🥰”

This class is tailored for the very beginner. It is an introduction into the world of costume making. We will cover measuring, pattern reading, and how to adjust the size of a pattern, We will also be looking at the sewing machine and the overlocker where demonstrations will be done. You will be encouraged to try the machines out. We will also talk about the design of a costume and what needs to be thought about when making a costume, including how to use the dolly board. There will be a fabric shop available. There will be lots of time for asking questions. All my classes are chilled and laid back.
