Master the overlocker whilst making our versatile Cowl Neck Dress that can be worn as a casual day dress or as a smart work number. With the option to shorten the length you can make it into a top as well if separates are more your thing. This class will not only teach you how to sew the Cowl Neck Dress but also how to properly use and understand overlockers.
First we’ll introduce you to overlockers. How to thread them, an explanation of what all the dials do, practise using them on different fabrics, sew a rolled hem and disengage the blade. You will leave with samples that you can keep for reference. You will then cut out the fabric for your dress/top. Ellie will give you lots of tips and tricks throughout the class.
Then thread up your overlocker and sew up your dress or top! You will leave with a finished dress, detailed handout with samples to support it and a pattern so you can make more at home.
This class will be held at the Lisa Comfort Home shop at 319 Essex Road, London, N1 2BD.
