Pick up new skills and unleash your creativity with guidance from our tutors from the Project Fashion team, led by Fashion Designer Paul Alexander. It’s all about personal growth in a fun environment at Project Fashion. Our aim on this workshop is to introduce students to the basic use of a sewing machine and to build their confidence to advance onto our more project based workshops. Classes are limited so early booking is essential! Use of machines are provided as part of the course price, however students are required to provide their own material for the production of the skirt / shirt. Class notes will be provided for each student. Also notes on current working designers will be handed out each week.
From week 6 to week 10 you will learn how to design/cut a simple made to measure pattern and produce a circle skirt or a shirt. CIRCULAR SKIRT – Cut as two half circles or sometimes as one complete circle. Circular skirts are simple to make. The inside circle is stitched flat to the waistband, the folds flow smoothly over the hips offering fullness at the hem.
