I had an amazing time today. Francis was super helpful and really patient (I had never used a sewing machine in my life). I'm really proud I managed to make my very first dress. Thank you Francis.
The class was with a tutor called Francis (apologies if I got the name wrong). It was great to hear about his experience in New York. He was a great teacher, and tried to accommodate all of us as much as possible.
The content was very helpful, the construction of the interfacing pieces were a bit confusing from my personal experience, as it was a lot of inside out processes to be able to understand. But I think that all just down to practice.
But all in all a great experience and worth the time and money. Learnt a great deal in 1 hour.
Had a fantastic day and loved the class; Francis was great. However I would say that it's very fast paced so might have benefited from two instructors if that's feasible. Thanks for a great day.
Francis is an excellent teacher, very patient and incredibly helpful. Only remember to let them know your side in advance as fabric was already pre-cut.
Only negative is the toilets, really in a bad state on both occasions being there :(
I loved this workshop so much! It was perfectly designed, dummy proof and works for everyone. Thank you for a great experience - I even wrote about it on my brand's blog if you want to take a peak :)
