Is this correct?

I work at a workshop cutting and making dresses.

Is it possible to write:

I work at a workshop cutting and dressmaking

That sentence seems to be saying you cut the dresses and make the dresses. Perhaps:
  • I work at a workshop cutting patterns and making dresses.
Or (even better):
  • I work at a workshop cutting patterns and sewing dresses.

I am not sure that dressmaking is a verb, but I could be wrong.
