Have you ever went shopping and thought to yourself "I wish I could make that."?
Have you ever tried on something and wished it fit perfect?
Have you ever wished for the opportunity to make an Irish design, made to fit just you and have that feeling of total accomplishment?
Have you always wanted to sew or learn about garment construction?
For my second installment of Knowing Sewing by Zoë Carol, you will get the chance to choose one of five designs from my past collections, get measured, use your very own pattern and make your very own Zoë Carol piece from scratch!
Lesson 1: Choose pattern, fabric & get measured. Learn the tools of the trade, pick your desired pattern and end garment, and learn about fabrics. Once you're familiar with everything, we'll measure for pattern changes. With your to get list and know how, you're ready for Class 2.
Lesson 2: Learn to lay out a pattern onto fabric for cutting. Learn how to pin and cut fabric.
Lesson 3: Learn to pin together your pattern pieces ready for sewing. Learn to map out your sewing steps.
Lesson 4: Start sewing your fabric pieces- once you've got the hang of zippers and buttons you're nearly there!
Lesson 5: It's all about the finishing touches to your garment. Finish!
What do I need to bring? You only need to bring yourself for your first lesson. Once you've chosen what fabric you'd like to use for your project, then you can bring it for your next lesson.
How long is each lesson? Each lesson is 1 hour long.
How many weeks is this course? It is 5 weeks long.
What if I need extra lessons to finish my garment? That's no problem, once your original course of 5 lessons is complete you can choose to continue with extra lessons for €25 per lesson.
Is there any additional charges? This depends. If you decide that you want to buy the fabric yourself or have your own fabric from home, then no. If you'd like me to get fabric for you, you will be charged the price of the fabric.
A time that I would like isn't listed, what can I do? You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can see if there's a class time that suits you better.
Is Wednesday the only course day that is available? For the moment yes but email me at email@example.com and let me know how best to accomodate you. Maybe there is another day possible.
