Alterations

"Fantastic! I can now wear my dress." Lisa

Have you ever bought trousers or a dress that needs shortening? Or a jacket that is too wide across the shoulders? Maybe you have a project that just needs finishing off? This workshop will teach you how to alter and finish those pieces of clothing that you long to wear but just don't fit properly or haven't completed. You will need to bring your garments with you (maximum of 3 please).

  • Unpicking and adjusting seams
  • Adjusting a hemline
  • Adding darts
  • Altering a waistband

Please bear in mind that a lot of the content will depend on what items are brought in for alteration to the workshop but further advice can be given.

Please note: Haberdashery is available but if you require something specific to your garment you will need to bring this along.

Knowledge: Basic hand stitching and be able to thread and use a sewing machine.
