Work on the dressmaking project of your choice with the expert guidance of Sew Over It’s resident Super-Teacher, Julie Johnston!
Julie teaches a whole range of our classes from our bestselling beginners course, Intro to Dressmaking, to our most advanced tailoring & fitting sessions. What she doesn’t know about sewing simply isn’t worth knowing!
If you’re stuck with a fitting question and don’t know where to turn next, have an invisible zip or buttonholes that you’re too scared to tackle or simply want to complete your project and learn some expert tips along the way then Julie is here to help. In these guided sewing sessions, you can bring along any project that you’re working on and Julie will help you through any sticking points, setting you up for sewing success!
As this class is in two parts then you may, depending on your project, be asked to do some homework in between the two classes to help you get the most out of the sessions. Along with expert tuition in small numbers you are, of course, able to use all of our equipment and help yourself to lots of tea and treats!
So we can be prepared for your session, after booking please get in touch on [email protected] to let us know what you’ll be working on. Attendees have found it useful to bring two or three projects that they are stuck on so they can benefit the most from Julie’s advice and leave the easy bits to do at home. For example, fitting some trousers, decoding some tricky instructions and mastering hemming chiffon fabrics all in a six-hour session!
- Have completed Intro to Dressmaking or similar
- Can insert a regular zip and attach a waistband

If you are above a level 4 then you are more than welcome to join the class. We just want to ensure that people will be able to sew independently whilst Julie is helping others in the group.
