We are excited to be working with Charlotte Newland, winner of the Great British Sewing Bee 2016, to bring you a fantastic weekend of dressmaking focusing on creating a dress that fits you perfectly. You will leave with a pattern that is customised to you and which you can make over and over again, along with a sense of achievement and some great memories!

Charlotte will guide you every step of the way in making a perfectly fitting dress. A shortlist of dress patterns will be sent after booking, from which you can choose one and bring it with you.

SKILL LEVEL: This is an advanced-beginners retreat. It is best if you already know how to use a commercial dressmaking pattern. You may progress more quickly with the project if you have some dressmaking knowledge and have completed a couple of projects already. All students must be comfortable with sewing machine basics: threading, seams, hems etc.

Note: The focus of the sewing sessions will be on creating a dress that will fit you perfectly. You may not 100% finish your dress, depending on how quickly you sew. You will leave with a pattern that is customised to you which you can make over and over again, and all the knowledge to finish your dress off at home.
