QTY:

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.

Based at The Manchester Craft and Design Centre in the heart of the Northern Quarter, you’ll find the Oak St. Cafe Bar to grab a cappuccino before your class starts!

If the above date is not suitable or sold out and there are no alternative dates showing below, contact us with the workshop name, so we can let you know if a place becomes available or when the next date goes on sale.

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 to complete.

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

Refreshments can be brought into the workshop, Oak St. Cafe Bar is next to the classroom, tell them you are on a workshop and you will get 10% off food.
