Mastering Collars and Cuffs

This is a skills based workshop aimed at students who want to start taking their dressmaking a bit more seriously. It’s the beginning of the journey towards finer dressmaking details and grasping some tailoring basics. Once you have made some basic items and you have reasonable confidence on your machine you will be keen to work on some more adventurous projects, and you are going to come across collars and cuffs (this is a great follow up course after mastering button holes)
