Sewing & Dressmaking Course for Beginners & Beyond!

Hello, Hello! Welcome to the fabulous world of sewing and online learning with ME! @misslibbyrose

I would love to welcome you on board this course, but before you book on I guess you are wondering… what will we do!?!

So, I have called this course “SEWING & DRESSMAKING FOR BEGINNERS & BEYOND” as I have made it super friendly for those that are learning from the beginning of their journey into the fabulous world of sewing to those that are ok with sewing but are thirsty to want to know more (and maybe have done a fair bit of self-taught stuff so want to check in that they are doing it right!)

1st things first.. we do an Absolute Beginners session, now I know some of you know this stuff.. But it’s always good to have a recap – and you never know, I might say something interesting that you didn’t know! And for those learning for the first time then you can watch and re-watch this section as much as you need in the comfort of your own sewing area!
In the Absolute Beginners session we will go through:-

Video 1) A quick look at how to thread up the sewing machine and bobbins plus which sewing machine is right for you

Video 2) Needles & feet Tips on needles, threads, how to change needles, why we need the different types..

Video 3) Practicing and good ideas for getting used to your sewing machine – easy tips and exercises to get you practicing and proficient on the machine!

PLUS you can download instructions, notes and practice sheets!

2nd up! We do a zippy make up bag both lined and unlined!
Video 1) Cutting out and laying the pattern and how to make your own pattern to your own size!
Video 2) Put the zip in to the lined and unlined version
Video 3) Sewing it all in place and creating the base!
You can also download the pattern and written instructions too!

3rd things 3rd! We get into sewing things further and make a reversible tote bag (with applique if you like!)
One Video for this one..
