This course is great for beginners, but equally satisfying for those with some experience.


You will need to provide materials and haberdashery for the dress. Why not pop in to discuss which dress is best suited to you, and then we can give you the exact fabric requirements.هتBoth styles can be made in a wide range of fabrics with weight. Cotton or linen for everyday, wool for autumn/winter, or even silk for a special occasion.هت

Course Duration:

2 full days.
