You know THAT item in your wardrobe? It’s your wear-it-every-day, so-blimmin-comfortable, wish-I’d-bought-three absolute favourite. But it has seen better days and you’re feeling anxious about its inevitable demise. Well now you can clone that clothing!
Our expert dressmaker, Jeanette Archer, will teach you how to make a pattern from your favourite garments without having to hack them to pieces, be they dresses, t-shirts, trousers or skirts.
You'll learn how to trace your garment and recognise the basic shapes that make up a paper pattern, transfer details like darts, pleats, pockets etc. and add information like notches, grain-lines and labelling to go home with a complete hand drafted copycat pattern.
As this is not a beginner’s workshop, you must already have some experience on a sewing machine or have attended one of our Beginner sewing workshops. Some knowledge of sewing patterns would be an added bonus but not essential.
You’ll need to bring one or two existing
garments from your ‘closet’ along to the course, and you’ll choose just
one to trace on the day. Please
do not bring anything too large or with lots of parts, for
example a ball gown or shirt, as there will not be enough space or time
All materials and equipment are supplied for this workshop and are included in the price.
