I’m off to school this week! Well, i’ve signed up to do some evening classes in garment making… I’m keen to practice, practice and do more practice! What I hate is making clothes and ending up with something that looks very obviously homemade. I aspire to be able to finish garments off neatly and professionally looking. Maybe one day to couture standards – but hey, you have to start off somewhere!
Thought I’d share with you some of the places I have found in London that offer sewing classes that may inspire you. It’s definitely NOT a comprehensive or exhausting list:-
London College of Fashion (C London) Short Courses – They offer the widest range of courses but are pricey!
Kensington and Chelsea College (C/SW London) – Offer standard Clothes making course and some lingerie courses, much more affordable than LCF
The Make Lounge (N London) – Excellent beginner sewing workshops especially the knicker making one!
Oh Sew Brixton! (SW London) – Basic range of dressmaking courses – averagely priced
The Papered Parlour (SW London) – A couple of basic ‘make a dress in a weekend’ type courses
And with that in mind, I am going to cycle off to my class and let you know how I get on…
Addendum: Also Fashion Antidote (E London) is worth checking out as well!
