Have you learned all the sewing basics but are not interested in making your own clothes? Why not try to making clothes for your kids? Kids clothes are quick to make and don’t use as much fabrics. Besides, they are very cute and you can win the hearts of your new little customers with ease.
You will learn how to read a pattern, cut out and sew your chosen garment, finish to a professional standard and add some personal touches to it. Our patterns are suitable for ages 6months to 3 years old, 3 to 8 years old & 9 to 14 years old.
Areas we also cover include:
- - Discussing sizing
- - Cutting fabric from our in-house pattern
- - Sewing straight lines, curves and corners
- - Finishing seams
- - Reverse stitching
- - Machine hemming
- - Use of our overlockers
- - Buttonholes
