Our intensive 5 day studio course is aimed at sewers who want to fast track their learning in one week. The course will cover 3 of our styles and students will also have lifetime access to the online workshop versions as well.
Day 1: Frida Shirt
Day 2 & 3: Over Shirt
Day 4 & 5: Worker Trousers
This course is aimed at intermediate sewers. Students should be familiar with a sewing machine and have made a few simple garments before.
What you will learn:
You will learn a very broad range of high quality finishing techniques that will elevate your sewing to a much more advanced level. We'll be going through traditional construction methods for soft tailoring & workwear garments, all while fine tuning the eye to aim for precision sewing. The course will cover the following:
Concealed button stand fly
Waistband and belt loops
Cheats overlock with topstitching
Pockets with facings and french seam finishing
Run & Fell seams
Classic collar and collar stand construction
Cuff with a placket opening
Sandwiching a double back yoke
Sewing on buttons
We will provide all your tools along with your fusing. You'll just need to bring the following:
- Fabric & buttons for each garment (see patterns for requirements)
- Matching threads
- You will receive pre-printed patterns in the post which you'll need to cut to your correct size before the course starts
The course will run Monday - Friday, 10am - 5pm with at 45 minutes for lunch. You'll receive a printed timetable along with your patterns roughly 3 weeks before the start of the course.
