Drafting class: Basic Shift Dress Philippines

Today’s a nice Sunday. Our student was able to draft her basic shift dress for the first time. 

If you took lessons from us, I suggest that you repeat the same project so that you can practice doing it better or at least faster. 😉

Gawa Ko To Pattern Drafting Workshop in Bacolod City 

It all started with a wedding invitation. One of my friends in Shanghai is getting married! 

Don’t they look fab?! I thought this is the perfect time to visit another friend, whom I also met in Shanghai, and haven’t seen in years! 

She told me we should sew things together. I thought. Ok, why not do a workshop as well. We announced on Facebook probably a month before. 

Wait, I almost forgot, 

I caught the bouquet!!! 😂😂😂 One of the highlights of my trip. I hope this tradition yields accurate results. Lol! 

For the location, we are so lucky to find a newly opened establishment, Arendo Coworking Space. They are really nice there and accommodating and it is right in front of LaSalle. 

The students I’ve met have interest in sewing but some of them have just tried to sew but without formal training. 

We were laughing and just sewing together. 🙂 

Here are some pictures from the event. As always, it is very warm and pleasant to be in Bacolod 🙂 Oh and I probably ate a bit too much lol. We were eating non-stop! Today is rest day before leaving for Manila tomorrow! Thank you so much!!! ❤️❤️❤️

Tote Bag Sewing Lessons in Laguna 

For first-time sewers, i highly recommend starting with an easy project first, like this tote bag. That way, you have plenty of time to get adjusted to the machine, sewing, threading the machine and so on. 

Afterwards, you can shift to some basic drafting classes and make your own clothes. At Gawa Ko To Handicrafts, we not only sell sewing supplies, see our shop>> Http://www.shopee.ph/gawakotohandicrafts 

We also offer sewing classes and pattern drafting lessons. You can also simply choose the projects you like instead of going through a whole series of sewing course. 

We are also open to teach by appointment in Makati. Thank you! 

Sewing Lessons for Kids

Hi for those asking Kids Sewing Lessons will be updated here.  Or if you are following our Facebook page (gawakotohandicrafts) in the albums, just look for Sewing Lessons for Kids.

These lessons are open for 8 – 12 years old. Younger ones should be accompanied by parents and the projects should be easy ones first like the pillow case or tote bag. Because we need them to get used to the sewing machine also for them to master sewing on a straight line. 🙂 Thank you.
