Fantastic workshop

A really great introduction to dressmaking. Gave a really good overview for working with patterns, pockets, ruffles and French seams! Thoroughly enjoyable day, despite a few stresses. Katie and Lucy are both so patient and positive in their teaching and their passion and enthusiasm is so infectious. Thank you so much and look forward to joining you for another workshop soon
