Beginner Sewing >> Advanced Sewing

Join a Sewdeliska sewing class in Perth, WA, as part of a friendly, small group (maximum four) or book a private sewing lesson.
ALL SKILL LEVELS WELCOME.

Bring your own pattern projects and be guided through the garment planning and construction process in a light-filled studio.

If you're a beginner, start with a Sewdeliska pyjama pant pattern (additional charge at checkout). We will focus on foundational techniques and terminologies.

After that, you bring an appropriate, beginner/easy level pattern. You can buy these wherever fabric is sold. If you're more of an intermediate sewist, you can bring your own projects to class from the get-go.

You'll learn how to:

  • Take basic measurements of your figure
  • Read commercial tissue paper patterns and 'independent' PDF downloadable sewing patterns and identify material requirements
  • Choose fabrics appropriate for the style (one gets better with experience)
  • Simple sewing pattern adjustments
  • Techniques for fabric handling, laying up and cutting out
  • Sewing construction methods and cool techniques to go from slow to pro!
  • Fitting your garment and making changes to hone the styling
  • Trouble shoot all those inevitable 'road-blocks' with the assistance of an experienced dressmaker
