DRESSMAKING - Papanui High School -

Our Dressmaking classes cater for students from Beginners through to those who can already sew. Students can make a garment of their own choice and the tutor will instruct and give help to individuals as needed. It is recommended if you are a complete beginner you keep your first project simple so that you become familiar with basic cutting, sewing in straight lines, and threading a machine before you move towards a more difficult project. If you are a more experienced sewer you can make a garment of your own choice (please note you need to bring a commercial pattern with you) or you can repair or alter an existing garment.
