Make a Fashionable Tunic

Make a Fashionable Tunic


This class is suitable for the intermediate sewer, who wishes to continue to learn and improve on how to follow and fit a domestic pattern for a simple tunic design. During the three evening sessions the tutor will guide you through measuring and fitting to your shape / size. You will then cut out in suitable fabric, finally constructing and finishing the garment with machine sewing.

The evening class is a relaxed and enjoyable environment to have the opportunity to work alongside those who have an interest in making clothes for themselves, and benefit from the guidance of a qualified and experienced tutor.
