This advanced dressmaking course in Glasgow is the natural follow on from the Intermediate or for those of you confident in your sewing skills and looking to take your garment construction to the next level.
In this course you have a choice of two patterns, the elegant Elisalex or the fun Flora, both by our friends at the independent pattern company By Hand London (rrp £14.00) and it is included in the price of the course. The school has selected these patterns as they offer students the potential of a wide range of sewing options.
Students will be taught the tracing of the pattern to make as a template to allow for the alteration of the master pattern. The drafting of a toile/muslin to allow for accurate fitting, incorporation of a lining whether the pattern calls for it or not, making your own bias binding, hand finishing etc. A demonstation will be given on making a tulle underskirt and bodice boning.
Depending on fabric choices either of these dress patterns lend themselves to be rendered, either evening or day wear. This course is designed to give you the confidence to make structured dresses and formal evening wear - prom dresses and bridal wear.
