As well as designing my own sewing patterns I also teach sewing, dressmaking and pattern cutting at my base in Brighton – MIY Workshop. All of the MIY Collection sewing patterns are available to use at my sewing classes.
On Sunday I had a lovely bunch of students for my Pattern Cutting for Dresses workshop. I worked them extremely hard and they all made a perfectly fitting dress toile. They went off able to make a sleeve, manipulate the darts and make a sleeveless version of the dress. Unusually I didn’t have my camera, but the students did leave me with some great feedback:
“A busy day, which flew by. An amazing class for someone who wants to make clothes that actually fit properly. Wendy explained everything clearly and patiently and gave individual attention over points that needed clarification. Very highly recommended!” Barbara
“Really enjoyed it, learnt far more than I thought I would, very friendly and open to all questions – never felt stupid!” Sophie
“Had a wonderful instructive day and learnt so much. I now have a dress toile that fits me!” Jackie
“Really great class. Learnt so much and left with lots we can make. Wendy was very patient and explained everything very well. Will be coming back again ASAP!” Sylvie
The next date for this workshop in October is already fully booked, but I will be doing more pattern cutting courses and one day workshops later this year and early next year. If you’d like to be able to book onto a class before it’s advertised you can be included on my student mailing list, just email me at:
