We were really excited when blogger “Lazy Daisy Jones” agreed to teach a basic dressmaking workshop to make Pyjama bottoms with us in December. We love Ashley’s style and her creative vision and have been fans of hers for a while now! Ashley was shortlisted for the first series of the BBC2 hit TV series “The Great British Sewing Bee” and all we can say is their loss is our gain (but of course we do wish her well if she tries again!)
We used the wonderful Gutermann fabric which is 160cm wide and perfect for dressmaking projects
The group all did really well, first laying out the pattern pieces and cutting the fabric,
they learnt French seams and other tricks of the trade,
as the garments started to take shape
Ashley was on hand at every stage to help and guide the students.
The more adventurous added pockets for detail.
The finished results were really pleasing and everyone was keen to know what Lazy Daisy will be teaching next…
The latest dressmaking workshops with LazyDaisyJones are now available to book online
Ashley will be repeating the successful Pyjama bottoms workshop on 19th February
Beginners are also invited to try the A-Line Skirt workshop on Saturday 21st March.
More advanced dressmakers who have tried either the pyjamas and or the A-line skirt workshops should feel confident enough to come along to the Mathilde Blouse workshop on 9th and 16th May (two full day sessions).
Lazy Daisy will be teaching all of these workshops and has other plans to bring a fancy frilly knickers workshop to Butterfly Bright as well! We look forward to welcome her back in 2015!
Go on! Start your dressmaking adventure with Butterfly Bright and LazyDaisyJones today!
