Sewing (Intermediate)

Do you have a sewing machine that has been collecting dust? Need to refresh your basic sewing skills? Want to expand on the skills you already have?


This is a short intermediate course aimed to expand your sewing techniques and push your confidence to sew and alter your own clothes or just add your own individually to a garment.

Gemma Vincent is a seamstress with 14 years experience in making and altering Costumes for the West End theatre, as well as TV and Film. She also has her own Clothing brand, Sewin Love, combining her passion for tattoos and the rockabilly style.

On this course you will learn how to:

  • Take professional measurements
  • Flat draft a basic trouser pattern using your measurements
  • Cut out and fit a garment
  • Adjust a pattern to the style to suit you
  • Insert pockets
  • Put in a trouser fastening
  • Finishing techniques

Guidance on all techniques and machinery will be given throughout. 

Additional information & other costs

We provide a fully equipped studio and supplies, but you will need to supply your final garment fabric as everyone's tastes and styles are different.

This 6-week course runs one evening a week from 6pm to 9pm.
