Moving on from Learn to Sew (cushion)

Moving on from Learn to Sew (cushion)

The workshop aims to move on from the ‘Learn to Sew’ workshop and to develop the skills of those who have mastered the basics, giving participants a greater confidence with sewing by expanding on their skill base. This will enable the participant to feel confident in choosing from a broader range of the Amy Butler sewing patterns.

The skills covered on the day while making the cushion cover will give all the technical information necessary to begin dressmaking, with the Amy Butler ‘Barcelona skirt’ being an obvious first choice.

You will produce a cushion cover, which will contain all of the skills listed below. You may also have the chance to embellish your cushion cover with embroidery.


How to make a button hole and keep it neat; putting in a Zip; using interfacing and making self covered buttons
