Dressmaking – Ladies Pull-on Trousers
New Forest Fabrics is delighted to welcome Karen Harmer back once again. This workshop is for a pair of ladies pull-on trousers and is offered by popular request.
Here is what Karen has told me about her sewing career……..“My love for sewing started in my teens. I took needlework lessons at school and went on to do pattern cutting at college”
“By the time I was 18 I was designing and making clothes for myself, friends and family. I even made my own wedding dress. I worked for a soft furnishing company in London starting as a sewing machinist and cutter. Later I went on to design product lines that were shown at the Ideal Home Exhibition. I then trained a team of 12 to produce the range”.
“Family commitments resulted in a move to Southampton and I now make furnishings for cruise ships and take commissions for bridal and prom dresses”.
The workshop is suitable for anyone who has basic sewing machine skills. During this workshop you will learn some useful dressmaking techniques to get you started on a fabulous dressmaking adventure.
Please note; Once booked, you will receive a full copy of the pattern for your personal use. This pattern also provides pieces to make a dress and tunic.
