2022 Spring Dressmaking Course with Patricia Murphy


I am delighted to be hosting Tutor Patricia Murphy with her dressmaking course in 2022 at Elm Farm Studio, CO61HU.  Patricia will guide you through the process of using a commercial pattern, construction, working with you on your first garment or teaching you new processes along the way, enabling you to create a garment with a professional finish that will fit beautifully.


Once you have decided on what garment you would like to make you will need to discuss the pattern and your fabric choice prior to the first session so upon booking could you email to arrange a zoom or phone call with Patricia.  Measurements can be taken and she can advise what size pattern and amount /type of fabric you will need to bring with you.

This five day course is suitable for beginners to more experienced in dressmaking – but participants should be confident on their own machine.

If you complete one garment within the course you can move onto another.  Classes fall on five Tuesdays starting in March – May 2022, every two weeks.
