Our sewing classes finished on Tuesday night for the summer holidays, and we ended with a great class of making waist coats. The class was thoroughly enjoyed by all that attended and each of them got to leave with a fitted waist coat.
The class was over two evenings with the first the week before, the first evening was for cutting out the patterns and the fabric, this was a good start in learning about patterns and the different terms used in them.
The second evening was when the sewing started, everyone was at the same point, all fabric cut and ready to sew. Everyone had the option of either making their waist coats with a complementary lining or complementary trims. On this class we had some doing lining and some with the trim, this mean that everyone on the class got to see how it could be done both ways.
By the end of the second evening we has some beautiful waist coats although not all finished everyone left with the ability and confidence to go away and finish the garments in their own time.
We offer a wide range of sewing classes at Livingstone Textiles Bridport, from Dressmaking to home furnishings, if you are interested and would like more information please contact us and we will be happy to help.
