1:1 Sewing Lessons with Alison

Group courses, workshops and 1:1 sewing lessons held locally, in Bawtry, Near Doncaster in South Yorkshire,  and online with the Love & Stitches Club.

1:1 Sewing Lessons Overview

I’m really proud of the work that I do with my 1:1 students.
We work together to develop your own skills as needed, and as such, the projects and skills covered in these lessons are extremely varied.
I’ve helped students work on everything from achieving better fitting trousers, and altering patterns to accommodate big boobs on a small frame, to creating an ultimate, dream wedding dress.

I want to work with you to help you feel more confident creating the clothes you love. Come and join the community, and get set to take your dressmaking skills to a whole other level.

Practical Info

For your first lesson, you’ll need to have a pattern ready for whatever you are planning to make. You will also need to have sourced and purchased your fabric, but you might not need it in the first session. If you need any advice on patterns, or what type of fabric will be best for your project, I am more than happy to advise you.

I do have a small selection of patterns from independent pattern designers such as ‘Tilly & the Buttons’ and ‘Made my Wardrobe’ available for you to purchase if needed.

It was the best decision I ever made, joining the Love & Stitches Club. I have learnt so much from Alison, and I don't think I would ever have achieved the new skills I have on my own. Would massively recommend! Thank you, Alison!
