Would you like to further build on your overlocker techniques or just simply need support on an unfinished project? This workshop is designed to help you along the way with your commercial patterns using your overlocker. Vanessa Noonan will offer you guidance, support, theory and pointers to help you along the way with cutting out, construction, transferring markings, fitting and any technical issues you may have, but please note you may not necessary finish your garment within the session due to the diversity of projects. When the pre-read goes out will we ask you what you would like to achieve and what you will be bringing so Vanessa can try to cover everything you need from the session, enabling you to continue at home or at the next Dressmaking with an Overlocker Club!
