When the weather was still chilly Miss AP and myself began our 6 week party dress workshop on a Tues eve. This has been really challenging; to trace your own bodice block, to make a toille from scratch and make up a dress in 6 weeks is a tall order. All credit to our students, they’ve done marvellously.
We had no idea about what designs people would choose and lucky for us no-one wanted to make an Oscar gown. It was good sitting round a table and talking about the designs each person had chosen, they were all very different, just like the individuals in the room. We had a classic tailored dress,maxi dress, body-con stretch number and boned bodice to name a few. This workshop has been so succesful we have decided to run it again and it starts on Tues from 7-9 on April 27th for 6 weeks at a cost of £45. You will need sewing experience as the course is action packed.
