This way, You can use the pattern again to use it either for smaller or bigger size later on. Some of us know well, how easy it is from year to year have different size of clothing. Believe me, it comes handy to be able to remake your favourite piece of clothing that bit bigger or smaller (usually bigger in my case)

Sewing breaks in Cornwall and Devon

We are setting up sewing holidays and short breaks in Cornwall and Devon. Our first dressmaking break will take place end of September in lovely cottages at Treworgey farm. More details on this sewing holiday is here.

The idea is to enjoy few days in a lovely peaceful location where you enjoy silence and nature while learning new skill. You will go home with clothes you made and new confidence in sewing. Along the way you will hopefully also make some new friends. This sewing break is great for individuals as well as couples. If your partner (or friend) doesnt wish to join the ‘sewing’ they can either join our photography workshop or do what they wish and join you in the evening.

We will be working using some of these sewing patterns; I will email details of all necessary notions and materials options once you book.

The farm is located near Looe, in East Cornwall. Here is little peek at the place

NEW dressmaking workshop and dressmaking retreat

I have worked hard lately to create something new for you. I decided to offer 2 days dressmaking workshop (instead of usual 1 day). Another change is that I will offer you selection of patterns (quite a big choice) as this helps me to manage the lessons better and you will benefit from it more. You will learn more, you will feel more relaxed as you can be sure to finish the project and maybe even manage 2! You find more information and you can book this Dressmaking 2 days workshop here.
