Style Confidence

How often have you spent time and effort making a garment you really love the look of but then never wear?  Or what about the money you’ve spent on new clothes only to leave them hanging unworn in your wardrobe?  And all because they just don’t feel ‘right’ on, but you don’t really know why.

Join tutor Jo on her Style Confidence Workshop to help make these kind of mistakes a thing of the past.

In this informative, colourful and interactive workshop you’ll discover the best styles, shapes, colours, patterns and fabrics for your body shape and proportions. In understanding why certain details don’t work for you, you’ll release a whole new confident and creative you in your future sewing projects and shopping trips!

Please note: No actual sewing is involved but your future sewing will be infinitely more fabulous!

What will we cover?

You’ll get to grips with your body characteristics: your shape, how many angles, how many curves, your proportions, are you short waisted, long legged?

By understanding your body characteristics you’ll start to understand how these affect how you look and feel in your clothes; why some are favourites and make you feel great whilst others end up hanging there unworn

Put all this info together and you’ll start to understand which shapes, styles and details work best for you

How will I be taught?

You’ll be taught in our lovely studio by a friendly and experienced tutor, with plenty of opportunity to ask questions.

Do I need any previous experience or skills?

This workshop is for:

Anyone who feels they’ve lost their way in their clothes and style

Anyone who feels disheartened or bored when they open their wardrobe doors

Anyone who’s interested in clothes!

Are materials provided? Is there anything I need to source myself?

Please bring a few items of clothing with you that fall into these two categories:

  1. I love to wear this and feel good
  2. I like this, but never wear it/don’t feel right somehow.

What will I take home with me?


You’ll start to get more satisfaction from both sewing projects and shopping trips when you end up with clothes you love wearing.

You can save money and time by avoiding those impulse buys and be more efficient and informed in your choices.

Most importantly you’ll start to feel happier and more confident in your clothes again.


Drinks and biscuits will be available but we recommend that you bring a packed lunch with you.


During all of our workshops photographs are taken for promotional purposes only. Please make us aware at the time of booking if you would prefer not to be included.
