SWIT SWOO! If Joan from Madmen were a dress…

Free your inner bombshell and sew this seriously sexy wiggle dress to flatter your womanly curves. In your own choice of fabric (see 'Additional Information'), choose to make either a sleeveless shift-style dress or one with a flattering mid-length sleeve and make the ultimate dress to flatter your figure.

You’ll learn how to use a pattern block, sew double point darts, insert sleeves or add a sleeve facing, add a neck facing, put in an invisible zip and finish hems perfectly. What’s more you’ll get a truly professional finish while learning to use one of our Janome overlockers.

INTRODUCTION TO BODICE FITTING is the ideal (but not necessary) workshop to attend prior to this workshop. If you aren’t a standard size i.e. size 14 on the top and the bottom (and who is, let’s face it?), you can draft a bodice to your own measurements then bring it along to use.

As this is not a beginner’s workshop, you must already have some experience on a sewing machine or have attended one of our Beginner sewing workshops.

Based at Bamber Sewing Machines, Ministry of Craft customers get 10% discount on the wide range of fabrics, haberdashery and sewing patterns and there are various discounts available on their sewing machines and overlockers.

If the above date is not suitable or sold out and there are no alternative dates showing below, contact us with the workshop name, so we can let you know if a place becomes available or when the next date goes on sale.

If you order fabric from our online fabric shop, it will be waiting for you in the classroom on the day of the workshop or you can buy on the day from Bamber Sewing Machines range of fabrics and get 10% discount.

For a sleeveless dress you will need 1.5m of 150cm wide fabric or 2.5m of 115cm wide fabric.

For a dress with sleeves you will need 2m of 150cm wide fabric or 3m of 115cm wide fabric.

Please avoid bulky or slippery fabrics; light to medium weight woven cotton is ideal. If you are not a standard size and are attending without taking the INTRODUCTION TO BODICE FITTING workshop first, then please consider purchasing a fabric with a small amount of stretch to it (e.g. cotton with elastane), to give you movement.

A 56cm (22") concealed/invisible zip (be careful not to pick up a standard zip).

20cm of fusible interfacing (this can be bought from Bamber Sewing Machines on the day).

Matching sewing thread.

Contact us before the course if your bust circumference measures outside the range 80cm - 102cm so we can ensure there is a pattern block made in your size and so we can advise how much fabric to bring.

This workshop is part of a Sew Social day, there may be a short wait if the tutor needs to demonstrate a technique required for a different garment. It is, however, a great opportunity to pick up additional skills and chat about what others are doing.

Our sponsors, Janome, supply computerised sewing machines (230DC) and where required overlockers (6234XL). Unfortunately, it is not possible to bring in your own machines.

Tea and coffee will be available at the workshop and there will be a break to eat, so please bring along some lunch or you can pop out to Asda located opposite.
