    Suggested fabrics:

    For beginners, we recommend light- to medium-weight woven fabrics, such as linen, double gauze, chambray, or cotton lawn. If you feel a bit more confident, viscose and lightweight crepe fabrics can work very well, but are more tricky to handle, cut and sew.

    You will need to bring:

    Your own sewing machine and sewing kit, including fabric scissors, paper scissors, pins, fabric markers or chalk, measuring tape and a seam ripper. The correct amount of fabric for your chosen style and size, as detailed below.

    – Top, sizes 1-5: 1.2m x 150cm (60in) wide, OR, 1.7m x 115cm (45in) wide;

    – Top, sizes 6-8: 1.5m x 150cm (60in) wide, OR, 1.7m x 115cm (45in) wide;

    – Dress, sizes 1-5: 1.4m x 150cm (60in) wide, OR, 2.2m x 115cm (45in) wide;

    – Dress, sizes 6-8: 2m x 150cm (60in) wide, OR, 2.2m x 115cm (45in) wide

    Co-ordinating thread, 0.3m interfacing (similar weight to your fabric – most likely lightweight).
