I don’t very often post about my sewing classes here, but this one is an exception as the students were all new to dressmaking, all used MIY Collection sewing patterns and all got great results as you can see!
Don’t they look fantastic!! Yes, these really were their first garments and yes they are all made from knitted fabrics. We have from left to right:
Tracey-Leigh in her gorgeous stripey vest, Kate in her floral print sweatshirt shrug, Lesley in her retro style glasses print shrug, Anne in a lovely version of the asymmetric skirt and Louise in a gorgeous vest dress – I love that colour!
All 5 students did absolutely brilliantly, they worked really hard, crammed loads of learning into a day and all had a finished garment to show for it.
If you’d like to have a go at making your own version of one of these garments at home, all three patterns are available to buy from my online shop at MIY Collection, printed on sturdy paper not tissue paper and complete with comprehensive instruction booklet, including how to work with knitted fabrics.
