Learn to Sew Concealed Zips with Amanda Brown



Take the fear out of sewing invisible/concealed zips! Concealed zips look fabulous in handmade garments but can be intimidating to beginners (and even lots of more experienced dressmakers too!)

In this fun three-hour class Amanda will show you tricks of the trade that she has learnt over her 35 years of sewing clothing alterations to solve problems you may have encountered sewing concealed zips. You'll learn simple steps for sewing top and bottom seams perfectly and pattern matching whilst inserting a concealed zip. 

In this workshop you'll receive:
  • Folder with Printout Sheets
  • Fabric Samples for your Folder
  • Concealed Zip Samples
