Do you have a classic hourglass figure? Are you the same dress size in every shop? Nope, nor us. Because you’re an individual with a one-of-a-kind body it feels like it can take aeons to find a garment, which fits across the bust, at the waist and on the shoulders as well.

Now you can save time (and money) in the shops and make your own bodice pattern fitted to your very own measurements. Whats more we'll also show you how to adapt your bodice block to create a sewing pattern for a head turning top.

You’ll start with a standard size bodice block and make some basic initial adjustments according to your measurements. Moving on to sew up a toile in calico and learn how to adjust it to fit you perfectly, you'll copy the corrected pattern to make your own personal pattern block (a customized pattern with no style details).

Our pattern expert, Jeanette, will show you how to create different bodice shapes by adding volume, transferring darts, drafting a yolk or creating princess seams. Then move onto styling details, including gathers and pleats, necklines, pockets and different sleeve and body lengths. Finishing off with facings, seam allowances and hems you'll have everything you need for a perfect pattern.

This is the perfect course to attend prior to our WIGGLE DRESS or FIT & FLARE workshop. You’ll have the means and measurements to go on to make a classic bombshell dress, which will hug your curves perfectly.

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.

All materials and equipment are supplied for this workshop and are included in the price.

Jeanette can help to achieve a better fit if you try the sample you make on the day over your bra. If you are not keen on getting down to your bra, bring along a thin vest or top.

Our sponsors, Janome, supply computerised sewing machines (230DC) and where required overlockers (6234XL). Unfortunately, it is not possible to bring in your own machines.
