    Make a Pair of Adult or Child Dungarees

    This is an opportunity for those fairly new to sewing, or those who want to improve their skills, to learn how to use a commercial dressmaking pattern. You will make a pair of child or adult dungarees.
    This is a relaxed fit dungaree/overall. It has tie straps which don’t need undoing in order to take the garment on and off! Choose between button holes or loops. In addition, there are FIVE pockets for hiding all your stuff. They are designed to be long and worn rolled at the ankle. They can be made in almost any fabric, although I would recommend a woven and medium weight one. There are loads of versions to be seen on instagram, some even made of duvet covers.

    Learn to use your sewing machine.

    This is the perfect sewing course for you if you are a complete beginner wishing to have a thorough introduction to using a sewing machine, learning different sewing techniques.
