A dress making mannequin (or dress form) can be a real advantage when you are creating your own clothes, but they seldom adjust to exactly your size.


This class helps you size your mannequin perfectly to match your measurements and proportions., helping eliminate fit issues and giving you greater confidence in using it for your dressmaking projects.  


The class will be very flexible to allow everyone to work at their own pace. During the class we will cover the basics of:

  • Machine set up
  • Sewing a range of stitches
  • Straight seams and turning corners
  • Marking, pinning and cutting a pattern
  • Joining pieces of fabric together
  • Finishing touches to make your project truly unique.


Sessions run from 10.30am to 1.30pm. Our classes are limited to six participants so every one has access to the space and support they need.


You will need to bring:

1m of cotton jersey fabric (to cover your manequin once fitted), an old but well fitting bra.


What's included:

Full instructions and expert guidance will be provided throughout the course. Wadding for shaping. Use of Janome sewing machines and all sewing equipment will be provided. (scissors, rulers, tape measures, pens, pencils). Tea, coffee and biscuits
