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 Bamber Sewing Machines, Ministry of Craft customers get 10% discount on the wide range of fabrics, haberdashery and sewing patterns and there are various discounts available on their sewing machines and overlockers.
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 or that would be difficult to lie flat, for example a stitched down knotted front dress/top.
All materials and equipment are supplied for this workshop and are included in the price.
Tea and coffee will be available at the workshop and you are welcome to bring along your own refreshments
