New Workshops

sewing workshops in London

Bonjour tout le monde! I hope you're enjoying the new year and getting into the swing of 2015 and the possibilities it holds. If "start sewing" or "up my sewing game" is on your goals list this year, we have some new workshop dates at our South London studio that you might like to know about - including this shiny new one...

Fitting Your Sewing Projects
Saturday 7 February 2015, 10am - 1pm

Who is it for?
Struggling to get that homemade dress to fit you? Can’t get those self-stitched trousers to sit right? This is a practical workshop for anyone who knows how to sew with patterns, but who needs help with the process of fitting a garment to their body. Join a small group of women who, with tuition from an expert in making custom-fit garments, will learn how to get a sewing project of your choice to fit your unique shape.

What will I learn?
  • The principles of fitting a garment to a variety of body shapes, including your own
  • How to adjust your toile for a custom fit
  • How to make fitting alterations to a paper pattern

Who is the teacher?
Nafisa Tosh designs, fits and sews bespoke garments for private clients, and for fashion photo shoots for Prada, Calvin Klein, Louis Vuitton, Dior, LancĂ´me, Pepe, GQ and Rimmel. She has 25 years' experience in sewing and the fashion industry, and has worked for Alexander McQueen, Giles Deacon, Christopher Kane, Antonio Berardi, Jasper Conran, Marios Schwab and Eley Kishimoto. She also teaches sewing at Ravensbourne College and the RCA.

  1. Happy New Year Tilly. Was very excited to see a course on copying your clothes but it looks sold out already...I shouldn't procrastinate so much! Is there any chance of this being scheduled again?
