You will have the opportunity prior to try on my garments to help you decide what your may like to make. Most people find it easy to collect the garments but have trouble with what to make, this is when being able to try the clothes really helps with this. I find most of the women attending my workshops have been sewers but have sometimes lost confidence in sewing for themselves, my previose experience helps me to assist them with styles and lenghts and shapes that suit.
