Melbourne Two-Day Dressmaking Course

April 18, 2017   /   byGertie  / Categories :  Feeds

Update: Oh my goodness, the class filled up in minutes! Please stay tuned for details of the Spotlight competition (there will be two spaces given away in this class) and see this post for all my other Melbourne events. I want to meet you all! xoxo

I'm thrilled to announce that I will be offering a two-day dressmaking course in Melbourne, Australia, at the Bayswater Spotlight Store. Spotlight is sponsoring this class at a special rate and space is extremely limited. 

Here are the details!

When: Saturday and Sunday, May 6th and 7th. 9:00 am to 4:00 pm each day.

Where: Bayswater Spotlight Store

Cost: $240 AUD. You will be invoiced via Paypal once your registration is accepted; please make your payment within 24 hours to keep your space. 


Class Description: Using Gertie's Ultimate Dress Book, students will learn fit a basic bodice pattern and walk away with your own custom variation of a sleeveless dress. There will be a strong focus on fit, with everyone being custom-fitted by me. You will spend the rest of the class learning my tested techniques for sewing and pressing darts, creating perfectly neat all-in-one facing, a vintage-style lapped zipper and much more.
Your finished dress will come together using a choice of the basic jewel neckline, V-neck, or elegant narrow shoulder. Students will choose to pair with this with one of three skirts (A-Line, Three-Quarter, or Pencil) to make the dress your own.
Skill Level: This class is not suited to absolute beginners. It is for people who are confident with using their sewing machine, reading patterns, and who have completed several garments before, including at least one dress. 
Supplies: Machines are provided by Spotlight. Students must bring their own copy of Gertie's Ultimate Dress Book (copies will be available to buy on the first day of the workshop), basic sewing supplies, fabric, thread, interfacing, and a zipper. (Detailed supply list will be provided upon registration.)
How to Register
Fill out the form hereOnce your registration is accepted, I will send you a Paypal invoice via email. Please pay the invoice within 24 hours, or your space will be given to the next person on the list. 
Space is very limited, but please keep in mind that I will be doing other events in Melbourne. Also, Spotlight will be a running a competition for two more spaces in this workshop (details to come). So if you miss out, you may still win a spot!

I hope to meet you soon!
