Sew along to this slow and steady workshop with detailed guidance for beginners. This workshop will give you a solid skillset and good habits to build on which is important to have at the start of your sewing journey.

The simple style means it's a manageable project but that doesn't mean we cut back on quality. You'll learn high quality finishing techniques along with tips on how to handle your fabric and tools to your advantage.

Format: Pre-recorded tutorial - 1 hour 44 minutes. You can watch it in your own time as many times as you want.

Level: Beginner 

    What you'll learn:

    The workshop will take you through at a steady pace and included built in chapters to break down the project into bitesize stages. You will learn how to sew with more precision, using french seams, applying flat binding and easing in sleeve heads. The course will encourage you to sew with close attention to detail, often using millimetres instead of centimetres as guidelines to encourage aiming for precision. This is a great starting point on the journey to sewing more high quality pieces for your wardrobe.
