Yesterday was the first Sunday workshop based around my new book.
Judging by the end results and what the students thought of the day it was a great success!
Here are three fabulous t-shirts made by three complete beginners to dressmaking. From left to right: Beth in a beautiful rich purple ponte roma version, Natalie in her printed single jersey version and Emily in a zingy bright red single jersey version.
All three went off inspired to make more t-shirts, in fact they had all already got fabric lined up for their next ones and Emily (who is a graphic designer and book-binder) is planning to start screen-printing hers. I look forward to seeing those!
And Salva got a good way along with a short sleeved shift dress with a collar in electric blue needlecord – I can’t wait to see the pictures of that one finished.
Here’s what the students thought of their day:
“Wendy, thank you so much for a lovely day. Brilliant book with very clear instructions for a complete beginner, I definitely have the bug!” Natalie
“Wendy is the most patient and informative sewing teacher ever! The course is worth every penny. Thanks Wendy for another great day!” Mel
“As always Wendy was great and her new book is fabulous – very clear and simple instructions, so difficult to come across in so-called beginner books. Great course. Loved it!” Salva
“A really helpful day which has given me the confidence to have a go at home.” Beth
“I wanted to learn some very basic sewing skills, I came away with so much more. Thank you. I think you will be seeing me again on future sewing courses.” Emily
The next date for this workshop on 30th November is fully booked, but I will be running it again in 2015, to get priority booking before new dates are advertised online, sign-up here: http://eepurl.com/EVEYn
