Give the gift of sewing this year. Did you know Fabric Godmother now runs dressmaking classes?
We have a wonderful bright studio in Hove, fully equipped with everything you need to create your own clothes. All of our classes are run by experts in sewing with lots of teaching experience.
2 new classes have just been added that will be taught by the talented Zoe Edwards in the new year.
The Lark Tee Class is a perfect introduction to sewing with jersey fabric on your sewing machine. With a number of sleeve and neckline options, this pattern will become a wardrobe staple.
The Scout woven Tee is the ideal class for somebody who has completed a simple project on a sewing machine and would like to learn about dressmaking and following a commercial pattern.
Our teacher Zoe Edwards is the author of the sewing blog So Zo… With a degree in Fashion Design, Zoe has worked in various roles in the fashion industry. Her growing passion for creating clothing by hand, more slowly, thoughtfully and sustainably than mass-manufacturing practices led her to leave the clothing industry and to set up a now successful blog that focuses on sewing sustainably with style. Currently she teaches sewing, dressmaking and refashioning skills, develops her own sewing patterns, blogs and occasionally runs a contemporary craft market called Brighton Craftaganza, as well as being a full-time mum. She’s also the creator and host of the popular online challenges called Me-Made-May, which encourages those who make their own clothing to wear it more often than they usually would with the aim to improve their relationship with their handmade wardrobe.
