Over the course of four weeks you’ll learn how to create a capsule wardrobe for your child with our tutor Rosalind Wolstenholme, owner/ creator of ‘Raspberry Pop Shop’ organic childrenswear. You’ll learn basic dressmaking skills including cutting and finishing techniques and will also master the art of sewing with jersey/ knit fabric to make comfortable practical clothes for your little ones aged 3 - 10 years.
These workshops are suitable for those who have used a sewing machine before but are new to dressmaking.

You will be required to bring fabric of your choice and will be sent information about fabric requirements before the course begins. Upon booking, please specify your child’s size so that an appropriate pattern can be made available for you at the workshop. The products photographed here are made with fabric available for sale either in store or through our online shop. We would recommend buying your fabric in advance and washing it before use. Feel free to pop in for a chat if you are unsure about fabric choices!
