Make Your Mother Proud 3 - Even More Useful Sewing Techniques | Chichester Sewing Workshop




In this follow on workshop from Make Your Mother Proud 2 we delve further into our sewing and dressmaking skills. We learn how to adjust a pattern for a better fit, or change it to suit our requirements. We cover drafting a pattern from an existing garment as well as how to insert a concealed zip, along with other useful dressmaking  techniques. Our final project is to make a quilted clutch purse out of gorgeous fabric with a letterbox zip pocket, a magnetic clasp finished with a covered button to match.

About your Teacher:

Fiona Hesford is a fashion textile designer who has been working in the fashion industry for over 20 years. She has a passion for fabric, colour and pattern and making clothes. She is a regular contributor to Love Sewing and Sew magazines with her dress patterns and general sewing projects.

Class Size:

Small class sizes, with a maximum class size of 8.


Ideally you should have already completed "Make Your Mother Proud 1- Learn to Sew" and "Make Your Mother Proud 2 - An Introduction to Dressmaking" as this course assumes some prior knowledge of sewing and threading a sewing machine.

This is ideally suitable for Intermediate level sewing.
