Recreate Your Favourite Garment - Pattern Making

Do you have a favourite item of clothing which you would love to recreate in a different fabric? This workshop will teach you the skills to copy a favourite item of clothing. You will make a paper pattern of your chosen item (you will not be making the actual garment!) and a cotton/calico toile ready for fitting.

"Great course Emma, very enlightening & satisfying to have made a pattern & a toile, thank you" Andrea.

You will learn:

  • How a garment is constructed
  • To duplicate detailing of your garment (darts, pleats, gathers etc)
  • To calculate seam allowances and hems
  • How to make adjustments to the design (optional)
  • To make a cotton/calico toile ready for fitting

Suitable for: Someone with some knowledge of sewing and is able to follow simple patterns.

Please note: Please do not bring tailored items (ie; suits, tailored trousers). I would also recommend not bringing jersey items. A simple garment is best to start with. If you are unsure of your chosen item I am happy for you to email me with a picture so I can advise you of suitability.

Additional costs: None, pattern paper, calico, tools and refreshments are all included in the price.
